Another Procedure this Week

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I have another procedure this week at UCLA. It's been delayed 4 times now. Sigh....Β 

I believe this will show what is causing my dysautonomia. All docs think my liver isn't the cause but I believe it is. Here is MY diagnosis ahead of the test I have this week. I am having a right heart Cath and liver pressure gradient measurements done to see if the liver is causing my preload failure. I think it's going to show that I have either portal hypertension or subclinical portal hypertension. I think my Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFLD) is causing my autonomic dysfunction and preload failure. Below you will find two articles discussing AD and Preload Failure both as a result of NAFLD. Lets see if the student instructs the teacher. This was also my idea to have this procedure done, not theirs. When I explained my rationale they agreed and here we are. Fingers crossed πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

NAFLD as a cause for Preload Failure
