PCOS & Fatty Liver
I am a 34 year old female that has been overweight most of my life. There was one stint in my early 20's when I did W.W. and lost a lot of weight. Once I hit my goal I let myself get back to hold habits. Mostly because I was just plain old hungry! Fast forward to my early 30's. My husband and I were trying to get pregnet when I was diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor did not explain what this meant or even what I needed to do naturally to change/treat this. I was placed on Metformin and fertility drugs. Im thankful on the one hand because I have my beautiful son but on the other I didnt realize that this condition goes as deep as it does (balding, irritability, moodswings, weight gain) all things that I suffer with.
Just recently I went back to my doctor as we are trying to have another child and I was told that my liver enzymes are elevated. This is due to a condition called fatty liver, an ultrasound was done to confirm this. I was specifically told that I need to make sure I am eating a low fat diet to lose the weight and lower the amount of fatty tissue around my liver. However this just isnt making sense to me. I ALREADY EAT LOW FAT EVERYTHING. I dont eat red meat only ground turkey. We eat wheat pasta, low fat cheeses, low fat dressing, low fat you name it.
I was doing research on your page for PCOS and you recommend Phase 1 Restricted diet for PCOS. My question is will eating full fat foods harm my already fatty liver? Any advice is great.
