Fatty Liver Treatment

Fatty liver is unique disease, as there are no conventional medications as other common diseases have. It’s develops due to bad eating habits, being overweight, and lack of physical activity.

Can Fatty Liver be Reversed?

For the treatment to be effective, we need to tackle two main factors. One  is a proper fatty liver diet plan to lose weight and change bad eating habits, and two (2) a physical activities and/or exercises to burn the fat in your body. If you do these two and do them properly, you have a real chance on reversing fatty liver.

Look at the following illustration. This is how you turn a “Fatty Liver” into a “Healthy Liver”.

How to treat a fatty liverWeight Loss

Being overweight is the #1 cause of having a fatty liver. There is no way around it – you must lose weight to treat the disease. And as mentioned above, it must include both changing your eating habits and by starting to do some physical activities.

But be careful – too much weight loss at an exaggerated rate might cause a side effect and can even make it worse. Take it all nice and slow, and you’ll be safe.

Get Physical

Whether its walking down the park, jogging, running, swimming, or any other type of activity that involves physical movement of your body, start doing it! Exercise will increase your metabolism, and thus will replace your body fat with muscles. Three times per week would do wonders.

Changing Your Eating Habits

Avoid foods with high levels of fat, cholesterol and sugar; in addition, try to avoid carbonated drinks. These foods are the main reason for fat build-up around the liver. Instead, start eating healthy food that has a high amount of dietary fiber and other beneficial nutrition. Learn more about the recommended foods for fatty liver.

    I have the same question above that Kathy has, about NASH, I was diagnosed a month ago, but since then with diet exercise and herbal remedies, my liver tests are all normal. Can NASH be cured completely as it is under the umbrella of NAFLD. My officail diagnosis after biopsy was mild seatohepatitis?

    I was told that you can reverse NAFLD, but not NASH. Is that accurate? I eat a very healthy diet, exercise all the time, yet still have NASH.

    My husband is 22 and 5’9, 190-195lbs. He is very muscular and does very strenuous hard labor work. He was diagnosed with a fatty liver. He doesn’t drink. We don’t understand how he got this, and how the main thing is to lose weight when he isn’t “fat” and to exercise when he literally does all day.

    Hello Anand,

    As I tell to many of my patients, “natural” medications, such as Liv 52 DS, should only be taken as an addition to a proper acceptable treatment for fatty liver and not as a replacement.

    In general, a proper treatment for NALFD is diet, physical activity, and changing your eating habits.

      Hello Manish,
      Weight loss, diet control, and exercise, are very efficient to cure fatty liver disease.
      It takes just few months to see improvement in the disease, but could take years before total cure of fatty liver.
      After the disease is cured, you need to take attention of you health your whole life. Meaning – watch what you eat, control your weight, and liver a healthy liver in general.
      This is mainly because your body and liver are vulnerable to the disease, and mis-care could return it.

      Best regards,
      Dr. Mark Bar-Gomel
