Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Fatty liver is a kind of liver rebuild where liver cells are replaced by fat. It can be caused by alcohol intake indeed. However also obesity or bad diet can cause such issue. When left untreated, fatty liver can turn into liver cirrhosis (what can not be cured). Luckily, fatty liver is reversible. All you need to do is to eliminate fatty liver factors. To do that you should avoid alcohol and improve your diet. Avoid alcohol, fatty foods, spicy foods, fried foods and medicines like pain killers.
You can start L-Ornithine L-Aspartate supplementation.

Diet together with mentioned supplement should help your liver. You should also have cholesterol levels checked and if elevated, statins should be prescribed.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
