Hi,
thanks for writing in.
Fatty liver is a condition in which there is abnormal deposition of fat in and around the liver. It is due to alteration in the systemic fat metabolism. It may be associated with diabetes or raised cholesterol or even over weight. If untreated it can give rise to pain, fat malabsorption, gall stones and the worst of all cirrhosis of liver. The good thing about the disease is that the disease is completely reversible.
The outline of the management is
1. Regular exercise.
2. Dietary modifications (high protein moderate carbohydrate low fat diet)
3. Plenty of water
4. Medications (a. tricholine citrate+sorbitol combination for 6 months b. Ornithine preparations for 6 weeks.)
5. Repeat liver function tests and ultrasound examination after 6 months.

I hope this answers your doubt
regards
