hi
yes,this seems to be an early cirrhosis for sure. the fat in the food you eat is not being digested properly due to cirrhotic liver causing yellow diarrhoea.
you should take high carbohydrate diet and avoid taking food ingredients containing high fat levels.
thanks

hello there
fatty liver is an early stage of cirrhosis. both the conditions indicate different steps of the same pathological disease. from the symptoms,it does seem to be cirrhosis and you should get medical attention at the earliest

That would be an early stage cirrhosis..and your gall bladder needs to be checked ..get a new US over the Gb and liver ..avoid fatty food and alcohol.. Maintain a healthy low fat diet ..

HI
IT SEEMS TO BE AN ONSET OF CIRRHOSIS.BILIARY DUCT OBSTRUCTION MAY BE ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH THIS AND SHOULD BE RULED OUT. A CT GUIDED LIVER BIOPSY WILL DIAGNOSE THE LESION. IT SHOULD BE DONE BY AN EXOERIENCED GASTROENTEROLOGIST.
