    There is some growing thought that NAFLD is something of the body's silent scream it is struggling in metabolic terms.

    Dr David Unwin, when reviewing patients under his care, realised the NAFLD can preced T2 by some years. In my opinion NAFLD should be seen as a distinct warning to the individual that something needs to change.

    Regarding fatty liver, the most common cause is alcohol abuse. Is there any link with alcohol abuse and onset of glucose intolerance?

    Progress on Newcastle: I finished four plus months ago I have been following Prof Taylor's advice to eat 2/3 of what I ate before and that is not only working but I have actually lost a couple of pounds more. Today I bought some of those medium sized dinner plates that are about 2/3 the size of the standard size ones and hope they will help. Actually I suspect it would be better to intercept the food at an earlier stage. Say, get smaller saucepans and oven dishes so I cook less or even use a basket not a trolley in the supermarket so less food comes into the house in the first place. Or just think of the size of Meghan Markle's waist for inspiration. If she can do it anyone can!

    I’ve been trying the blood sugar diet but am unable to go below an average intake of 1100 calories. I’ve lost 4 kilos and my HBa1C is 5.3 now - am in the non diabetic range but Ultrasound test shows Grade 1 fatty liver and doctor advised I continue on half the medication. you suggest going on NCD instead?
