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.

    In October 2018, I was diagnosed with Non alcoholic cirrhosis. My gastro has me dieting. She couldn’t put me on medication for it yet because she said the meds make you gain weight. She said its important I lose the weight. Absolutely no sugar, no white flour and no white bread. I was sent to her over stomach issues and a fatty liver was showing, but by time she finished testing and got to the fibroscan, the diagnosis was Stage 4 Fibrosis. Doesn’t want me losing more than 5 pounds a month, because if lose too fast it will shock the liver. I made her mad because when I went back for 3 month check up, I had gained back few pounds I had previously lost, and hadn’t stuck to diet over holidays. I understand its serious, and she made me realize by her attitude that she meant it. She recommended following a Mediterranean diet. While the food is ok, its been hard because I am a country girl..biscuits, gravy, red meat, dumplings..Just wish I could find some better recipes..lot of fish..I don’t care much for fish..

        What does eat right mean? Specifically. For me eating healthy meant frosted flakes, deep fried southern chicken with extra gravy, and then eating a great deal of salads, fruits, aloe vera. Well, I kid, because I am sick,but what should I eat and what should I avoid. Bread? What type of bread? All bread?

        I love rice—lots of rice, eggs, used to eat chicken (and they say my liver, lungs, and kidneys are not to happy, but I tell them they just need to turn it around and the frown is a smile). Please help.,and thank you
