Today I did see a little ray of open from my angel. Our nurse practioner is considering starting a nutrition/weight loss support group for people with NASH Cirrhosis. She battles weight all the time herself. She has been a diabetes educator in the past and knows how important diet is in these illnesses. She wanted my input. She is going to contact the local GI doctors, hepatologists, etc. I want and need this so desparately. This is giving me more hope than having more darn tests.

That's a fantastic idea. It is very motivating to lose weight together with others. Especially those who are doing it for the same reason, their livers. Please keep us informed.
