Unfortunately there is not one specific medication for this condition. Nevertheless there are several things you can do to slow the disease and even reverse it.
1. Alcohol abstinence. It is proven in studies that liver biopsies show reversibility when abstinence from alcohol occur.
2. Weight loss
. Weight loss as little as 7% of total body weight have shown to improve fatty liver
3. Diet. Low rapidly absorbed carbohydrates (sugars, candy, etc.) and high protein diets help slow the disease.
4. Exercise. Exercising 20-30 minutes a day 5 times a week is recommended. You can do cardiovascular workup such as walking, running, swimming and cycling.
5. Treating underlying conditions. If you suffer from diabetes
there are some medication that can control your sugar or cholesterol spikes, reducing the pace of the disease.
I know that hearing that there is no specific medication can be discouraging but these lifestyle modification will improve your health in all aspects.
If you have any other query don't hesitate to ask me.
