I have fatty Liver after having Jaundice

Hello Doctor I was diagonalized with Jaundice in the year 2001 due to excessive consumption of alcohol, after a brief treatment i recovered and continued consuming alcohol within a couple of months and in 2 years time this led me to Hepatitis and fatty liver . From then i have been taking alcohol on and off. Now i have recently given up the habit and have decided not to touch it anymore. My appetite is back to normal i am adding on a lot of weight in fact obese and i do not take any medicines except Liv.52. Will this help me to get my liver back to normal function??? What else would you suggest to have a normal liver function. I do not have any other effects due to fatty liver as of now.

see u are late but still can give ur liver enough time to recover ...but again your off & on love with alcohol will certainly lead to irreversible stage of liver damage..and hypertension of vessels around it leading to bleeding in stool /black stool.... for all this u need to undergo some basic tests like sgot/sgpt/ s.albumin /hb/tlc/dlc/esr and an ultrasound ......then u can be started on some specific treatment to hasten ur recovery and limit the damages if present

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
If you have stopped the Alcohol you can prevent your liver from being damaged beyond repair, a stage called Cirrhosis. After this stage is Coma. You must understand to not even take little alcohol as this can be disasterous and cause permanent liver damage. Liv. 52 is Ayurvedic medicine which is not understood on how it works. You need to eat balanced healthy diet. Eat less fatty food as you are doing now. Eat plenty of fresh green leafy vegetables which removes fat from the body. Regarding obesity, you need to exercise more. Add 40 minutes of your day for brisk walking. You can get your blood lips test done to see if you are at risk for cardiac or heart problems.
