Hi and thanks for the query,
acute fatty liver is easily controlled with a life style modification on its own. Its a good idea that you avoid alcohol already. Weight loss and exercise are key issues in the management. I suggest a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and fibres. Regular exercise, avoidance of alcohol and avoiding taking of drugs toxic to the liver, especially drugs containing Paracetamol should be avoided. Consider the opinion of your treating physician before taking any drugs. Continual abdominal scans and liver function tests are keys aspects in your management, preferably by your gastroenterologist.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.

Hi thanks for your question.
You have mild fatty liver and you are pure vegetarain and non alcoholic.Cause of your fatty liver is quite evident as you are fond of sweets.Consuming excessive amount of sweets can cause fatty liver.Since your fatty liver is very mild it can be managed by life style modification only.Life style modification means daily excercise and decrease in sweets and oil intake.There are medicines for fatty liver but since your fatty liver is very mild it can be managed by life style modification only.
Hope this answers your answers.

Hello sir, thanks for asking in Healthcare Magic.

The cause of Non alcoholic fatty liver is not clear. It can have a hereditary lineage as it tends to run in families. Pain in the upper part of abdomen is one of the presenting symptom of non alcoholic fatty liver disease. It is often associated with Diabetes or high cholesterol. Though you dont have sugar and hepatitis B & C you should also rule out high cholesterol as you seem to be fond of sweets which may contain saturated fats like ghee and vanaspathi.

The most important aspect about control of fatty liver is to maintain proper weight and balanced diet. A moderate physical activity will help.

You should avoid diet with high glycemic index. These are substances rich in carbohydrates that which absorb quickly and completely causing an immediate fluctuation in blood sugar level like potato, rice, sweets, bread, corn, jaggery, concentrated sugar juice etc., Instead you should opt for low glycemic index food like wheat, ragi, fiber rich vegetables like beans, oat meal will be useful. Saturated fat should be avoided.

Antioxidants like vitamin E, Selenium are found to be beneficial but should not be taken in excess.
Many vegetables like carrot, tomato and fruits also have antioxidants and can be added to your regular diet.

I hope this is useful to you sir.
