Hi I can understand your concern...

Noted your husband having fatty liver with high cholesterol.
So care must taken now otherwise he might develop hepatitis and after long time chronic liver disease also....here are suggestion for him...

Take low fat diet.
Use less oil in cooking.
Use only good oil in cooking like sunflower oil.
Fruits taken more like papaiya.
Trans fat food taken very less like butter, ghee, cheese, meat , junk food etc...
Regular one hour exercise needed.
Avoid alcohol and smoking...
One tsp licorice with honey can taken.

If still cholesterol not controlled then lipid lowering drug can be started...

Take care...
