Hello, jayapen,
Fatty liver can be associated with high lipid levels ,diabetes and overweight.
If your blood sugar and lipid levels are normal , then the condition is not too
bad. Also , your liver blood tests especially enzyme levels , if high that may be
more serious. In most cases fatty liver could be reversed with a low fat diet,
staying away from anything that can damage the liver such as alcohol and drugs
including over the counter or prescription drugs.
I would recommend that you start taking Vit-E 800 i.u. daily and Vit-C 1000 mg. daily.
High protein diet , fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts are all good to improve liver.
Hope you can discuss these with your doctor and take appropriate action.
I wish you well.
