Thanks for posting your query

Fatty liver in either case alcoholic or non alcoholic is reversible only if it has not scarred

Once the inflammation sets in and the liver tissue gets scarred and fibrosed it will end up in cirrhosis

I think it would be better on your part to give up alcohol, avoid fatty meals and take a good hepatic tonic in advise with a gastroentrologist

Hope this helps
