Doctor :  
please proceed with your health query
Doctor :  
You can discuss your health problem with me
User :   doc i have been observed with a fatty liver, also m very obese, so i hav been on a strict diet, but recently i read a lot about honney n cinnamon
Doctor :

User :   i hav had a very bad history of drinkin which i gav up recently
Doctor :  
how was the fatty liver diagnosed? was it an ultrasound or a biopsy?
User :   so nw m jus concentrating on losing weight
User :   it ws in a normal abd scan
Doctor :  
you need not have a very bad history of drinking, obesity with with alcohol is known to cause fatty liver even if taken in smal amounts
Doctor :  
ok
User :   the last i had it was on 8 th sep 2009 which said mild fatty infiltration
Doctor :  
losing weight will help you
Doctor :   since it is mild fatty infilteration, the chances are that the changes might get reverted back
Doctor :  
to normal
User :   but since it ws mild i did continue drinkin for the next 3 months wud that hav made it worst???
Doctor :  
it would have caused you mild damage
Doctor :  
now focus on quitting alcohol comoletely
Doctor :  
*completely
User :   i hav already,
Doctor :  
and concentrate on the diet and weight loss
User :   neways after a month i shall c it again
Doctor :   There is no particular cure for fatty liver, but a diet for fatty liver and weight loss can help reduce the damage caused to the liver.
Doctor :   A person who is obese and is having fatty liver should reduce his/her weight very slowly. The diet to reduce fatty liver problem depends on the cause.

Doctor :   are you a diabetic also?
User :   no
Doctor :  
was anytime sugars tested for you?
User :   in my case it is drinking
Doctor :  
as high sugars and a carbohydrate rich diet over time also causes fatty changes in the liver

Doctor :  
ok
User :   so hw shud my diet n weight loss b????
Doctor :  
A balanced diet is what you need
User :   fast or slow???
Doctor :  
which should focus on weight loss
Doctor :  
and also low carbohydrates
Doctor :  
or complex carbohydrates
User :   my sugars r normal
Doctor :  
weigt loss and diet change should be taken slow
Doctor :  
as already damage is set in in the liver
User :   some doctor had advised me low proteins n high carbohudrate diet online???
Doctor :  
so any crash course will put more stress on it
Doctor :  
was that time the fatty liver diagnosed?
Doctor :  
or was it only the weight loss that you were focused on?
User :   dec 2008
User :   it was diagnosed
Doctor :  
if it was only weight loss that you were concerned then tht doctor advising you low proteins and high carbs would ve been right for only weight loss achievement
