Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
Fatty liver could be a result of hepatitis,(jaundice) drug abuse, alcohol, or may be secondary to the hepatitis B, or C.
I advise you to consult a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment. Now a days fatty liver can be cured, provided there is no underlying disease.
I advise you to exclude the hepatitis B, and C.
Give her more of green leafy vegetables,pulses,sprouts,and protein rich foods to have blood,general health and resistance against infections.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
