Thanks Patricia. It all depends on whether I have 25% of my liver good yet. I won't know that for a while. If I don't have that I won't be living too long.

Told my wife that tonight but all she wants is to talk divorce and argue. I'm telling my kids that if I die I want to be cremated and scattered in an area that I loved.

I now have a new doctor who did run the tests and she's terrific. I'm not, but she is. I'm type 2 diabetic with a severe extreme fatty liver. The cat scan with catalyst said that about the liver and the diabetes was a simple blood test. She says I'm going to a specialist about my liver, but I know it's pretty simple here. Do I have 25% good liver? If not it's soon going to be bye bye time. If I do have 25% the liver can repair itself in 3 years. No booze now and I will follow a diet to a reasonable measure, but I'm still going to eat most of what I like.

My previous doctor pissed me off. He thuoght I drank too much beer and ate too many hot dogs. That is not my condition. That is how you get in my condition. This new doctor listened to me and heard me talk symptoms. I can no longer drink alcohol because my body cannot process it. Through all of this my liver enzymes ae showing up as normal.

Patricia, have you tried the "no grains" plan as written about in Wheat Belly Total Health?  I've fought intestinal woes all my life. That is, up to taking ginger, flaxseed, yogurt, and cutting back on wheat products. But, I'm no doctor. Just sayin'.

Nice! I hope you feel better soon, Patricia!

@ Patricia - I agree. I always start with a few fresh tomatoes when I make chicken noodle soup. And a ton of garlic and some fresh fennel.

Spud, canned soup, you know, is loaded with salt. Be careful. Hope you're back on track soon.
And Patricia, you're right. I didn't realize I omitted salt--the ham made it flavorful enough.
Ate my first strawberries yesterday!

Thanks Joan.  If I had your digestive problems, I think I'd give-up.

The first day of my relatively minor problem, I ate nothing, just drank plenty of water.  The second day, just soup, with nothing solid in them.  The third day, soup with a few solids, and yesterday, a few more solid foods.  So far, I'm feeling well.

Spud, hope you feel better soon! I can sympathize with you after a Nothing By Mouth restriction, and then a liquid diet. Not fun! I like chicken broth with tomato paste. It makes a great soup. .

I've been eating just soup for 2 days now because my digestive system has been doing unpleasant things.  I was planning on making my own soup by pureeing vegetables, but I've been doing so much work in the garden, that I haven't felt like it yet.  Just been eating soup out of cans.

I tried something I've never tasted before.  I combined chicken stock with tomato paste, and it tasted good.

I wouldn't miss the garlic.  Kills the flavor of everything else in any dish.
