NASH – The story of the invisible threat to your liver and its link to obesity
Sophia, who worked at a retail store, wondered why her GP referred her to a liver specialist. She just had common problems like fatigue and overweight that most women her age suffered from. But Sophia had a pit in her stomach when they asked her to go for a liver biopsy as they had found abnormally high levels of certain enzymes in her blood.
And she was diagnosed with the fourth stage of NASH and a notice of merely a month’s time to undergo a liver transplantation. In addition, she had to deal with the stigma that she would have to face while sharing about her condition cirrhosis, that is often associated with alcohol abuse.
