Suggest treatment for fatty liver

Hi, my mother has been diagnosed with Grade 2 fatty infiltration of the liver. She is 56 years old. Her sugar level fasting is 124 and post eating, it is 222. Her cholestrol & BP are normal. Eight years ago she had gone through laproscopy in order to remove gall bladder stone. I would like to know what is the cause of fatty infiltration of the liver? What do you suggest should the treatment be? What kind of diet should be followed?

hi,
thank you for posting query at HCM.

Alcohol ingestion and obesity are common causes of fatty liver disease.

advice for fatty liver:
- abstinence from "Alcohol"
- LOW fat diet should be followed, AVOID junk food and beverages
- decreased oil consumption (oily food)
- NO red meat
- green vegetables should be ingested daily
- use lemon juice (lemonade) once in a day
- reduce weight if overweight/obese
-"recheck liver enzymes after 6 to 8 weeks" and/or ultrasound.
any further questions are welcomed.

hope to answer your concern.

wish you good health.

regards,
Dr Tayyab Malik
