Vitamin E for liver health and a hepatologist visit update

December 21, 2017 I had a visit with my hepatologist and quite frankly, I was nervous about going because 2017 a lot has changed in my body. I have put on quite a bit of weight, Im working too much and not really prioritizing my health, and have caught myself more often missing my morning dose of prograf. December I caught a really bad cold and probably had one of my top 3 worst cold sores ever, so my immune system must have been shot.

The last time I went to the hepatologist sox months ago, in addition to AIH, I also have fatty liver, so he recommended I watch my weight to get that out of control. Even though I am concerned, I just have not prioritized that weight loss, and now six months later, I am going back heavier then the last time he gave me heck.

Last visit, He suggested at that time that for liver health, I could drink as much coffee as I want, and that I also take vitamin E regularly as well.

The high dosages of coffee I implemented right away, with ease and enthusiasm. The vitamin E, like my morning dose of Prograf, the success was fleeting and eventually tapered off.

What is interesting in my results though, that despite some weight gain, and missed dosages, my coffee intake was definately upped. I literally have a cup on the go all day at work, minimim 4 cups a day, sometimes more, my blood tests improved, and my fibroscan also inproved a few points too. I was 5.-something, and I am now 4.-something.

So this has me a little excited! So the coffee consumption I will continue with, and I am taking Vitamin E twice daily.

We’ll see how my next visit goes!!

I am not giving any medical advice here, just sharing my personal story and personal results. Everyone’s body is different!
