 Fatty liver is a common condition these days because of increased alcohol consumption,junk foods and sugary foods.
No drug has been approved for its treatment.
 The best approach is to do the following:
Quit alcohol completely and not even a single drop,if you want your liver to become normal,otherwise it will progress towards alcoholic hepatitis and ultimately cirrhosis.
Maintain your weight at normal level, based on your height.
Regular exercise (e.g., brisk walk for 40 minutes a day )
Maintain your blood glucose and lipid levels within the normal range.
Avoid sweets,junk foods like burgers and pizzas and colas.
Take more of fresh fruits and green vegetables.
Take a super B complex vitamin with 1000 mg of VIT C.

If you don't drink alcohol any further,fatty liver is completely reversible.

You should avoid alcohol as these changes in liver would worsen and may lead to alcoholic hepatitis and eventually cirrhosis which would be non-reversible.
