User :   I have fatty liver, what kind of diet should I eat?
I have been diagnosed fatty liver one year after my hepatitis B diagnosis.

It was three weeks ago, but my pain is constant, I eat only steamed brown rice and steamed vegetable. What should I do? My weight is 198 pound. I don't consume any alcohol, I’m a sixty years old female. I got the Hepatitis B from my exhusband. XXXXXXXX
