Medications for Fatty Liver disease

Unlike most diseases that are usually treated by conventional drugs, there is absolutely no drug that can cure fatty liver.

In other words, there are no medications for fatty liver designed specifically for the disease.

This is because a fatty liver disease by itself has almost no symptoms and no medical implications; only its potential complications can be treated medically.

The most effective known fatty liver treatment for fatty liver is a combination of diet, exercise, and weight control.

Saying that, you might read at some places and even hear from some doctors, suggesting taking various medications for fatty liver as a treatment, such as Xenical (orlistat), that is used for weight loss.

But it can actually cause a liver failure in some cases. I am going to say it as clear as I possibly can:

Do not take any conventional medications for fatty liver disease.

These medications can only aggravate the disease, because they oppress the liver and forcing it to work harder than normal. Further more, there are absolutely no medical proof that they are effective treatment for fatty liver.

The only type of “medications” I would suggest taking alongside diet and exercise, are nutritional supplements, such as Omega 3, Southern Ginseng, and Milk Thistle.

In addition, if you’re serious about natural treatment for fatty liver, I highly recommend the Natural Fatty Liver Solution guide from Duncan Capicchiano N.D. I helped a lot of my patients.
