Has Anyone Else Been Diagnosed With NALD Along With Your Type 2 Diabetes?

Has Anyone Else Been Diagnosed With NALD Along With Your Type 2 Diabetes?

I have been a type 2 diabetic for 5 years now. I am also overweight and have been working on trying to lose more than my normal 10 lbs fluctuations. I am seeing a specialist for this now... I was diagnosed with NALD a few weeks ago and I
Am being treated metabolically for now with diet, exercise and meds. Honestly I am very scared. I do not drink alcohol so I am not sure if this is heritory or not. I will definitely welcome any input, recipes things that may be working for others

I have non acholic liver disease. The doctors have me onn meds for both cholesterol and triglycerides. Here is some of the reasons you may develop it. I took this from the Mayo Clinic website.
NAFLD and NASH are both linked to the following:

Overweight or obesity
Insulin resistance, in which your cells don't take up sugar in response to the hormone insulin
High blood sugar (hyperglycemia), indicating prediabetes or type 2 diabetes
High levels of fats, particularly triglycerides, in the blood

I have asked my Dr for a referral to see a nutritionist and a dietitian. I have stopped trying to convince myself that I can do this on my own... now that I have been diagnosed with fatty liver disease and unable to lose weight on my own I realized that this is something that I can't just dive in and blindly succeed at. This is an entire lifestyle change for me and I need some guidance

I was scared when told I was close to being diabetic. It took a while but I've since found out info about it, and what I can do to help it, and that helps take away the fear. I was also told years ago that I had fatty liver, without having liver disease (yet). For me, I am focusing on losing weight and if necessary, will consider weight loss surgery as a last resort. Otherwise, being obese just has too many bad side effects, I think. Good luck, a lot of people here have lost weight, it may take trying different things and finding what works for you.
