Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis can be caused by various factors. It can develop due to certain conditions like obesity, diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, or some nutritional disorders, or as a consequence of certain operations or medications.
Do you know what caused your NASH? Were you warned against the possible development of this disease by your medical team?

Hi I have Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome as well as NASH. The cause of my NASH is unclear however due to Chronic Back pain I was on a high dose of Tramadol (6-8 tabs per day) for several years which could be a potential cause although my mother also had it and there are some schools of thought that it is hereditary. Certainly my son has been targeted for regular observation once he reaches 18. My symptoms are periods of flu like symptoms every few weeks where I am bed bound burning up and then shivering for 2-3 days and feel very weak. The rest of the time providing I get 10 -11 hrs sleep per day I am relatively OK although I do often feel nauseous. I was only diagnosed 12 months ago by which time my liver disease was at stage 4. Varisces are my most significant life threat and I opted for banding instead of betablockers due to the nausea aspect and being confident in the surgical skills of my consultant. I have now had 12 bands (3 at a time) so far and more to come in a couple of weeks. Preventing your 1st bleed is crucial and it is important to have regular checks for both developing varisces and also any abnormal cells in your liver given your risk of cancer rises 10 fold. I have Endoscopies every 8 weeks, and an Ultrasound every 6 months. I am lucky I have a first class consultant probably the best in the North of England and he even phones to see how I am! My condition is currently stable so is not deteriorating further which is the objective for as long as possible before undergoing a transplant. The fear being that the same could happen to a donor liver due to the cause being unclear.

Does anyone know of a cure for NASH?

I believe my Nash was caused by various medications used over the years for treating Psoriasis. And having Type 2 Diabetes these two go hand in hand apparently.
