My Mom aged 70 has breast cancer, has diabetes is taking Glaugaphase controlls her diet and tests her sugar which has been fine.. . She is taking Tamoxifen to block the hormones going to the other breast and her Dr said this has caused a fatty liver. What can she do and how can she reverse this or is the damage done. She does eat a low fat diet and does not eat too much red meat and no eggs as they make her nausea afterwards.

Please advise.

Dear Ann
A fatty liver is often found in diabetes, sometimes causing some upper right upper abdominal pain, and not infrequently associated with slightly abnormal liver function tests. The best way to try and improve the fatty liver is to have good blood glucose control, lose weight if carrying too much(very important), exercise, and control cholesterol levels.

Ed:Thanks for your comment. You shloud now be on my email list with follow-ups that will give you more information about reversing type 2 diabetes and what you can do.Also, one of my posts on the blog is a video â € œ Diabetes Cure In 30 Days.â €   I hope youâ € ™ ve seen that, but if not please watch it.I put that up because it is a good video. The message is good, but there are some unrealistic things in it (not many) with regard to curing diabetes in 30 days. For example: the very first thing you will see, in the beginning, is where the American Diabetes Association states that diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure.That could be right, but in my opinion it is wrong.. Let me explain: I have cured my dependency on insulin and pills 100%  however, I also know if I go back to my old way of thinking and eat wrong and donâ € ™ t exerciseâ € ¦ I will become dependant on medicine again. So, in the ADAâ € ™ s viewpoint, I am controlling my type 2 diabetes by diet and exercise.And the other message I have trouble agreeing with, and I donâ € ™ t have all the facts yet, is when you only eat raw food to cure yourself where are you getting enough protein to balance out the bodyâ € ™ s need? But, in their defense, I am checking it out as I write.
