Fatty Liver

For Vietnamese, please visit Gan Nhiễm Mỡ

Liver disease is serious and requires treatment and regular monitoring by a liver specialist.

A liver specialist is known as a hepatologist and you need to be referred by your family doctor or general practitioner. Over nearly 40 years of practicing medicine I have seen many patients develop severe liver disease, which sadly could have been prevented by early detection and early referral to a hepatologist. There needs to be more awareness of liver disease so that patients can be treated early so that we can prevent cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer. Make sure you have your liver function checked annually with a blood test.

I have presented my ideas on how to help those with liver diseases using nutritional medicine, which I have been using for many years with good success rates. However my recommendations do not replace the care of your own doctor and you should remain under the care of your own doctor whilst using nutritional therapies.

Fatty Liver

Fatty liver occurs when excess fat accumulates inside liver cells. This means normal, healthy liver tissue becomes partly replaced with fatty tissue. The fat starts to invade the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas, so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains. The fatty liver has a yellow greasy appearance and is often enlarged and swollen with fat. This fatty infiltration slows down the metabolism of body fat stores, which means that the liver burns fat less efficiently, resulting in weight gain and inability to lose weight. However some people can have a fatty liver without being overweight.

Fatty Liver

Fatty liver was first described in 1980 by the Mayo Clinic. It is known in medicine as Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and is the most common cause of abnormal liver function tests in the USA, UK and Australia. NAFLD is the most common cause of liver disease in industrialized countries.

There is a type of NAFLD called Non-Alcoholic Steato-Hepatitis (NASH) where severe liver damage is caused by the fat, and results in cirrhosis and liver failure. Indeed such severe cases of NASH can lead to liver cancer.

Around one in five persons in the general population, in the USA and Australia has a fatty liver. Fatty liver is usually associated with abdominal obesity and insulin resistance and is more common in people with type 2 diabetes.


What causes fatty liver?

It is most commonly caused by incorrect diet, weight excess, obesity, alcoholism and diabetes. However other causes can be malnutrition, congenital metabolic disorders and excessive use of or toxicity of prescribed medications and pain killers.

What is the outlook for fatty liver?

If the fatty changes in the liver increase, inflammation and fibrous tissue may build up and cause more serious symptoms to occur. If nothing is done to improve liver function, the patient will become more overweight and the quality of life will gradually diminish.

How would you know if you have a fatty liver?

Many people with a fatty liver are unaware that they even have a liver problem, as the symptoms can be vague and non-specific, especially in the early stages. Most people with a fatty liver feel generally unwell, and find they are becoming increasingly fatigued and overweight for no apparent reason. They may have elevated liver enzymes on a blood test for liver function. Fatty liver is diagnosed with a blood test and liver ultrasound scan.

Possible symptoms of fatty liver (NASH or NAFLD) include:

  • Weight excess in the abdominal area
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Elevated cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea and/or indigestion
  • Overheating of the body
  • Excessive sweating
  • Red itchy eyes
  • Discomfort over the liver area

How is fatty liver reversed?

Fatty liver is reversible. Here are six ways to achieve this:

Eat less carbohydrate
Poor diet is the leading cause of fatty liver disease. The biggest offenders are sugar and foods made of white flour; they should be avoided. However, a high intake of carbohydrate rich foods in general can promote fatty liver, as the liver converts any excess carbohydrate into fat. Foods that need to be restricted include bread, pasta, rice, breakfast cereals, cakes, pastry, donuts, biscuits, fries, chips, pretzels (and other similar snack foods) and any food made of flour.

Drink less alcohol
Excess alcohol consumption is the second biggest cause of fatty liver. Alcohol can cause inflammation and damage to liver cells, resulting in fatty infiltration. People with a fatty liver should limit alcohol consumption to seven standard drinks per week, with at least two alcohol free days per week.

Eat more vegetables, protein and the right fats
Raw vegetables and fruits are the most powerful liver healing foods. These raw foods help to cleanse and repair the liver filter, so that it can trap and remove more fat and toxins from the bloodstream. Eat an abundance of vegetables (cooked and raw salads) and fresh fruits.

Protein is important because it helps to keep the blood sugar level stable, helps with weight loss from the abdomen and reduces hunger and cravings. Protein should be consumed with each meal. Good sources of protein include eggs, poultry, seafood, meat, nuts, seeds, legumes and plain or Greek yogurt and cheeses.

Healthy fats to include more of in your diet are found in olive oil, oily fish, coconut oil, flaxseeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and raw nuts and seeds. Most processed vegetable oils and margarines can worsen a fatty liver. Deep fried foods are also bad for those with a fatty liver.

Drink raw vegetable juices – these should be consumed 2 to 3 times a week and 250 to 300 mls (8 to 10 ounces) is adequate. Your juice should be comprised of 90 to 95 percent vegetables, with the remainder comprised of fruit if desired to improve the flavor. Citrus fruits are the most healthy for the liver.

Take a good liver tonic to support your liver function. Each two capsules provide:

  • Milk Thistle Seed Extract (Pure Silymarin 210mg) equiv 17,500mg dried milk thistle
  • Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 105mg
  • d-alpha tocopheryl succinate (vitamin E) 200iu
  • Thiamine hydrochloride (B1) 11mg
  • Riboflavin (B2) 11mg
  • Nicotinamide (B3) 11mg
  • Pyridoxine hydrochloride (B6) 11mg
  • Folic Acid 240mcg
  • Vitamin B12 60mcg
  • Biotin 60mcg
  • Calcium pantothenate (equiv pantothenic acid 22mg)(B5) 27.5mg
  • Zinc (as zinc oxide) 7mg
  • Selenium (as selenomethionine) 50mcg
  • Nutritive base 379mg Taurine, phosphatidyl choline from Non GMO soya lecithin, broccoli powder, L – Cysteine, HCI, L-Glutamine , Glycine, Inositol, natural caretenoids, (Camelia sinensis (green tea) extract, L – glutathione

Livatone Plus

Other supplements to support Fatty Liver

N Acetyl L Cysteine (NAC)
To support increased production of glutathione in the liver. Glutathione protects the liver and kidneys.

MSM Plus Vitamin C
Take 1 teaspoon daily. MSM is a source of sulfur, which assists phase 2 liver detoxification and also helps to reduce the formation of scar tissue.

Glicemic Balance capsules
Take 1 capsule with each meal. The ingredients in this formula help to support better tolerance to glucose and support insulin function. This will reduce Syndrome X. This is important because insulin drives fat production in the liver.

Fatty liver can be reversed. See Dr Eanelli’s testimonial here

  1. Yes- thanks.

  2. Hi,my name is Ben,from South Africa,i was diagnose with fatty liver today,i was also diagnose with XXY,can that be the reason to have the fatty liver,i am 57 years old,and used depo testostrone for 21 years,stop for 10 years now,

    • Hey there Ben,

      Thanks for contacting us.
      Your Klinefelter syndrome is not the reason – nor is it the depo testosterone that is causing your fatty liver. Id be interested to see your diet. A diet high in sugars and carbohydrates can most certainly induce a fatty liver. And sorry to tell you Ben, but even being a “wise” ;) 57 yrs of age can do it- a life time of this 21 century diet is really not good for our health. Best reference you can get yourself is the Docs book titled “Fatty Liver- You Can reverse it” if you purchase that along with Liva tone Plus- that is the beginning of your path back to optimal health.

      All the best Ben
      And thank you for contacting us

  3. Hi i am on a medication for ms Fingolimod 500ug i have a my liver function test is not good,my diet is not good either can you tell me if i can reverse my fatty liver and stay on this medication
    thank you

    • HI Debra,

      Are you using it for MS? If so, I know that Dr Cabot has also used Progesterone Cream with her MS patients and you certainly wouldn’t want to have any Gluten- you really must be 100% gluten free.
      ok- so in answer to your question- if you are going to stay on this medication, knowing that long term use of any pharmaceutical medication may cause fatty liver, you will do well to assist your liver in eliminating the metabolites of the drug out of your body once they have been used as quickly as possible. Liva Tone Plus- 1 x twice daily for 2 weeks, then 2 x twice daily ongoing will assist in the prevention of fatty liver. If you can, grab yourself a copy of Dr Cabots book titled “Fatty Liver- You Can Reverse It” + “Gluten- is it making your fat or sick”
      Thanks for email Debra- im sure these little dietary tips will help you a lot.

      All the best in health!

      Kylie McCarthy

    • Hey there Debra,
      Well you are singing our song! ;) with symptoms like that you have come to the right place.

      Dr Cabot uses the bio identical hormone of Progesterone for her MS patients and it has brought a lot of relief for many. Of course you would know that going 100% gluten free is imperative for such an auto immune disease, so lots of omega 3 foods, liquid fish oil and grain free living is best for you! There are two books that will help you a lot- “Fatty Liver- You Can Reverse It” + “Gluten- is it making you sick and fat”. In answer to your question, yes taking any medication can induce a fatty liver- so you need to follow these guidelines I have given you- and you will find a more comprehensive answer to your question in those two books. Please start taking Liva tone Plus 1 x twice daily for 2 weeks, then increase to 2 x twice daily ongoing. If you can, Id also recommend Dr Cabots Magnesium powder and Glucemic Balance daily. You may need to stick to the protocol for just a couple of months to reverse your fatty liver, however if the cause of your fatty liver- which is possibly your pharmaceutical drugs does not cease (because you cant stop taking your medication) well then a life time of this protocol is for you- incorporating green fresh vegetable juices daily- and you will be feeling much better than you are now.
      Debra keep in touch and let me know how you go- my direct email is kyliem@cabothealth.com.au

      Im glad you contacted us Debra.
      All the best in health

  4. Hi doc,
    I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetics. also have a fatty liver. advised metformin(hcl) one daily.
    but its not helping me much. please seek your advice. thanks

    • Hi there,
      Thank you for your email.
      A diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes can be pretty confronting- and of a major concern if you do not address your diet. Id like you to know Type Two diabetes can be reversed with your diet if you have found us early enough- not injecting. Please get yourself a copy of Dr Cabot’s book titled “Diabetes Type 2- You Can Reverse It” this will be your knowledge and motivating tool whilst you are on your journey back to health. Please be aware there it is imperative you are 100% grain sugar and diary free. Supplements that will make this process easier for you are Liva Tone Plus 1 x twice daily
      Magnesium powder- be sure to get the Docs powder as it is stronger than even her own tablets. 1/2 tsp with morning and afternoon tea + 1 big heaped tsp as you are going to be. Now her comes some truth- your an addict! And we are going to have to get you through your addiction- your addicted like most of the population to sugar and it is a very real addiction. I do make light of it to keep you smiling, but you need to address this now before you become even more dependant on your metformin and sugars. Glycemic Balance- please take 2 with each meal. Please start exercising daily- sweating, using fish oil- and making sure each meal contains fats. Serrapeptase is also a great fighter in the war against Type 2 diabetes- have you heard of it- check it out on the Docs website http://www.liverdoctor.com- you know it :)
      All supplements and the Type 2 Diabetes book- please get yourself a copy of the book for motivation and to help you understand your own body and exactly what is happening to you- you need to take control of your own health. Glad you found us.

      All the best in health

    • Hi John,

      Thank you for your email.
      Those drugs you need to take will be a major contributor to your fatty liver.
      There is so much I could tell you to assist you in the strong hope of reversing your type 2 diabetes. Dr Cabot has written a book titled “Type 2 Diabetes- You Can Reverse It” and also another title the Doc wrote called “Fatty Liver- You Can Reverse It” I highly recommend you order yourself those books for your own reference to fall back on and educate yourself on how to reverse your fatty liver and type 2 diabetes- yes, you can reverse them depending on your own personal case and dietary changes you are willing to make. Liva Tone Plus daily, Glucemic Balance + a Grain free sugar and dairy free diet will see you on your way to increasing and better health.
      All the best in health.

  7. I have recently been diagnosed with a fatty liver disease and I was mortified, as I am just 30. However, I am finding out that a good diet and complete lifestyle changes help a lot and my plan is to do my best to reverse it. Try changing your diet, eat healthy and you will see just how good you will feel.

    • HI Lynn,

      Thankyou for your email,
      It is great you are feeling the effects of a healthy life style- you are probably thinking “about time”
      All the best in health- it sounds like you are on the right path.



    • Hi there Adelle,
      The fastest way to regain your health and eliminate fatty liver is to go 100% grain free with your diet. At least until you reverse your Fatty Liver- this could take 2months up to a couple of years- each individual case is different.
      You do not need to drink alcohol to have a fatty liver- as you will by now know :)

      You will do very well to follow the protocol in Dr Cabot’s book titled “Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It” Following those rules of healthy eating lifestyle that are specific to your condition will have you feeling much better and symptoms alleviated. Time to reverse fatty liver varies from person to person.

      All the best in health Adelle- and thank you for your email

    • Hi Greg, Sounds as though you may have a fatty liver- hard to tell without consultation, but id start by addressing your diet to assist in reversing a possible fatty liver and inflammation. Dr Cabots book “fatty Liver- You Can Reverse It” is the book for your to read- lifestyle and protocol that addresses those symptoms you mention. Liva Tone Plus 1 x twice daily to begin, Digestive Enzymes- 2 with each meal. Gluten Free- have you seen Dr Cabot wrote a new book on gluten? Raw Juices. In bed by 9.30- up at 5.30 to exercise if your working day permits and go sugar/grain free. Magnesium daily- Dr Cabot’s powder is amazing. The strength of her powder will assist in reducing insulin levels, sugar cravings, stress anxiety and so on.

      I think we can help you a lot- and if all else fails, check the Docs Liver doctor web site under “Fatty Liver” for a whole lot more free info.

  12. Hello Kylie,
    I am a 52 year old male who recently had a ultra sound to determine I had a fatty Liver. My Doctor believes its 100% reversable at this point. He checked out all my meds and does not think they contributed. He did however come to the conclusion that my moderate drinking (red wine) is the cause. Im 6′, 214 lbs. and excercise (ride bikes) often. What can you recommend that might help me reverse this? Thx


    • HI there Mike,
      Red one can be one contributor yes. Id recommend you keep that bike riding up- and also go grain and sugar free for a few months until you heal your liver. 1x liva tone plus twice daily for a month- then 2 x twice daily on going. Magnesium powder will assist and id also entertain the idea of purchasing Dr Cabots book titled “fatty liver you can reverse it” that book will be your little life style, recipe and health “go to” whilst reversing fatty liver. In fact it is a protocol that you can take on for life. Thank you for your email, All the best in health

  13. Hello, I am a 60 yr old female with severe weight issues, especuially around my abdomen/ tunny area. Cronic pain in my knees and feet from overuse at my job and much job stress for years. I have hashimoto thryoiditus, adrenal fatigue, inflammation and I had endrometrial cancer 3 years ago. I need to get this weight down to prevent cancer elsewhere. I am on permanent disability from these problems and sciatica which prevents me from exercising any. I rarely eat any grains, just occasionally but to no avail. I eat veggies everyday and fruit.. Most breakfasts I have lots of steamed brocolli and a potato with my coffee. when I can afford it I will have a good selection of meat with it but I cannot afford organic. I tried the body control weight tablets along with good whole food but it did nothing for my weight. Also, on a side note, one of my B 12 tests show a reading of around 200. Is that adequate? any advive you could recomment would be terrific. thank you!

    • HI Patty,

      Best thing to do is go grain free- 100% and if you can not do that- at the very least- go 100% Gluten free- ie, so no wheat rye barley oats spelt. Going Gluten free will help with absorption on Nutrients- especially Iron and those B Vitamins you mention. Your diet seems ok, perhaps have a protein with your brocolli instead of the starchy potato. Dont forget about Fish- Mackerel / Salmon and eggs as your protein sources. If you have pain in your feet etc, try using a good quality liquid fish oil to assist in reducing inflammation- and it goes without saying, if you are overweight- every thing is going to ache eventually- so lose the weight. Patty if you have any further questions, please contact me at kyliem@cabothealth.com.au

  14. thank you for your reply. I can not take ACV… i have been for the last two weeks and it has made me ill… What detox symptoms are you talking about? I eat very clean but have severe chemical sensitivities ..allergic to many meds and supplements… I can take papaya enzyme. but tired garden of life and had bad reaction. I already eat clean with smoothies… Thanks for your help.

  15. HI there Milind.

    Ok- best you can do is not worry- if you have a mild fatty liver, just remember that you can and will reverse it if you simply change your diet.
    Liva tone plus- take 1 x twice daily with food for two weeks then 2 x twice daily on going
    Digestive Enzymes with each meal
    Apple Cider Vinegar in water daily in the morning.
    Each no sugar and no grains.
    Please consider buying Dr Cabots book titled Fatty Liver You Can Reverse It

    Thanks for your email

    • Hi Kimberley,

      Thank you for your email, Yes- you can start by taking the Liva Tone Plus- just start with 1 x twice daily for the first week- then if you are not suffering from any detox like side effects, or at least detox effects that are not tolerable, increase to 2 x twice daily on going. Id recommend that you also take NAC 1 x three times daily and you will do well with Digestive enzymes- 2 with every meal and a lot of apple cider vinegar in your diet, leafy green vegetables, no grains or sugar and green vegetable juices. Books that will be your little bibles and help you a lot are Raw juices Can Save Your Life and Save Your Gallbladder and what to do if you ve already lost it”

    • Hi Sajid,

      Taking Liva Tone plus 1x twice daily for the first two weeks, then 2 x twice daily on going will assist in eliminating the fatty liver infiltration that you have.

      Please look at the “liver” tab on our Liver Doctor web site- click on the “Liver” tab and scroll down to the section on Fatty Liver- reading that will help you a lot.

    • Hi Sabrina, You are best to stay away from all grains, whole, puffed, flaked, popped, or otherwise. The Starch of grains releases high amounts of sugars- which is most unfavorable.

  25. are u mad???????????/
    you subscribed that a fatty liver men eat protiens i.e.”Protein is important because it helps to keep the blood sugar level stable, helps with weight loss from the abdomen and reduces hunger and cravings. Protein should be consumed with each meal. Good sources of protein include eggs, poultry, seafood, meat, nuts, seeds, legumes and plain or Greek yogurt and cheeses.”

    • Hi Pritam,

      I am not sure where you get your information- was it a book of mine you read? Perhaps i can help you to understand because you seem confused. I recommend people eat quality sources of proteins from various sources.
      Am i mad- i hope just a little…it assists in getting through this life with a smile :)

    • Hello Heli,

      If you believe you have a problem with your liver, then i recommend a full abdominal ultra sound and HIDA scan. Conducting those two tests will get you some answers.

      Your diet looks great- start taking Liva Tone Plus twice daily plus 1 x selenomune daily until you get results from your HIDA and Abdominal Ultra sound.

      Thanks for your email

  33. Hello Dr. Kylie,

    I am struggling with systemic candidiasis and am on the candida diet. Since I could no longer consume most complex grains, I wound up consuming too much healthy fat, thinking it was good for me. I was having goat butter, coconut oil, eggs, beef broth, etc.
    When I went for my yearly checkup, I was told that my cholesterol was up as well as my liver enzyme, ALT. I was told that I have a fatty liver. My question to you is if I am mindful of what I eat, Will I be able to reverse it?


  34. hello doctor,

  35. Hi Doc.
    If you have a fatty liver can you be a liver doner? How long does it take to reverse a fatty liver?

    • HI Mary,

      Thank you for your email, Yes- you can be a liver doner. You will need to spend the time reversing your fatty liver and depending on the Fatty Liver Infiltration, that can take anywhere from 2months to 2 years. Fatty Liver You Can Reverse It is a book that will head you in the right direction. Take 2 x LIva tone Plus twice daily and that will get you on your way.

  36. Hi Doc.

    The Doctor here told me that I have a fatty liver and advised mo to do diet and exercise.
    Can you help me in this matter? What are the do’s and dont’s and the proper choices of food. I made some research on the net but some are contradicting others (in terms of right food).

    Anyway, the utrasonogram result says Liver is normal in sizes and shows increased echotexture. No focal lessions seen. No evidence of any intrahepatic biliary dilatation. Portal vein measures 1mm and is normal. Common bile duct appears normal. Can you interpret it and give me an advise.

    Thank you so much.

    • Hi Jarry, Diet and exercise are absolutely imperative.
      Reduce sugars from your diet- that may be alcohol grains etc- sugar comes in many forms.

      A copy of “Fatty Liver you can reverse it” has the protocol to reverse fatty liver. Your test results seem good, the mention of increased echotexture is indicating you have a fatty liver, however has not progressed to far.

      • Thanks Doc Kylie.

        I feel pain in my side parts. But when i press my tummy, no pain the in intestine. is it related to fatty liver.

        I am doing exercise – jogging at walking for 1 hr at night. I try to make sit-ups but i feel pain in my tummy the next day so i stop. is the pain in my side related to my sit-ups?

        I loose 2 kilos, but i cant identify if i burn fats from my tummy (i forgot to measure before).

        If i feel hungry is it ok if i eat almonds?
        I want to eat a bread out of whole wheat flour, is it advisable? But how about the eggs, most bread has eggs and yeast?

        • Hi Jarry,

          yes Almonds are Ok if you have a fatty liver. I do not recommend you eat any grains – let alone those that contain gluten such as whole wheat. Please go grain free- you will learn about this in the Fatty Liver book. You are able to get that on line at the liver doctor web site- i have provided you with the direct link below

          Eggs are a great choice. Eat eggs. Dont eat any bread.

          • My dr who I would call a very out of the box guy integrative medicine I guess says don’t touch almonds

          • Hi there, why would he say that?
            Almonds are very good for you.
            Organic soaked and activated of course.

      • where can i get the book, Doc? is it available in the bookstore worldwide?

  37. Hello Doctor,

    My X ray showed Elevated Right Epidiagphragm and I dont know if its fatty liver or lung or abdomen related. I dont have any pain or discomfort (coughing or difficulty breathing the past year until present)–I did stop smoking this year as well. I did gain a lot of weight though the past 2 years–from 190 lbs to 240 lbs. I am just 5’7″ in height.

    Would this be more fatty liver related? Btw no pain in abdominal area either.

    Thanks and god bless you

  39. what happened to my post

  40. hi, my husband has lived with crohns for 35+ years with medications. He was diagnosed with fatty liver about 2 years ago and today they said there’s indication of cirrhosis. The doctor said that meant scarring and there was nothing to do to stop it or reverse it and basically in the future would need a transplant. What can you advise to take that might help prolong the need of a transplant? He is 65 years old.

  41. I was having pain and thought it was my gall bladder. After an ultrasound I was diagnosed with fatty liver. All of my blood tests came back in the normal range. Does this mean its in the early stage?

  42. I had fatty liver and I use Livatone plus and I keep going to gym to lose weight I feel difficult to lose weight in gym , is it good to keep losing weight ?

  43. I am a sixteen almost seventeen year old male and my doctor says he thinks I might have fatty liver according to my blood test results. I don’t know what caused it. I am a 160 lbs. Male about 5 9 and am on the waterpolo team at my school and train vigorously 3-4 days a week. Although I do tend to binge eat junk food about once or twice a week I have a pretty healthy athletic diet any Ideas how I can work to cure my disease or how I got fatty liver?

    • Hi Mikey, you will see on our web site the supplements you can take to improve the health of your liver. I would also recommend eliminating foods derived from grains out of your diet until you reduce the amount of fat in your liver. Fats and proteins, nuts seeds etc are the way forward. If you have any further inquiries, please contact me at kyliem@cabothealth.com.au

  44. Please help me guys..

    • The link i provided you with previously will help you Jeffrey. Just remember that you can reverse fatty liver- so remain calm and focus on a healthy liver.

  45. Hi to all. Please help me what medicine that I can drink because I was diagnose a diffuse fatty changes last may and I’m not yet go back to my doctor. Please help me guys I’m from philippines

  46. Also doctors I havr a lot of food allergies like nuts pineapple sulphur cheese milk.all ansaid watercress. Jael Anderson

    • Jael, perhaps you should consider your food choices and start eliminating foods. Eat only proteins salads and healthy fat etc. Sounds like you may do well to see a Naturopathic practitioner- id recommend you consider that.

    • hi Docs can you recommend some foods that i can eat because i have been to so many doctors that are putting me on this and that and nothing seems to help and i am getting worst, after my last email to you i have had 2 asthma attack that landed me in the hospital, with chest pains and pains in my arms with bad indigestion, please help me

    • HI Jael, it may be possible you have Fatty Liver or syndrome X. Id suggest sticking with the protocol out of the book titled “Fatty Liver- You Can Reverse IT” The lifestyle and dietary protocol within that book will do you well.

  48. HI Andrew, yes i recommend gluten free living. Reducing grains- especially those containing gluten will assist in liver function and may assist weight loss.

  49. Can you speak about Gluten Free. Can be it used as a way to repair the Liver ? I was on a Gluten free diet program many years ago and dropped a lot of weight. Please explain.

  50. I was able to reverse fatty liver through nutrition.

    • HI Mitzi, yes- it is Nutrition that in most cases has induced a fatty liver. I’m glad to hear you have changed your lifestyle to equal good health. Many dont.

  51. Indians in general have fatty liver due to high carbohydrate and type 2 diabetic conditions…Being one, i find myself in agreement to the simple suggestions put in this article..thanks !

  52. Can fatty liver be reversed if it is genetic?

    • Hi Elizabeth
      The most common genetic cause of fatty liver is insulin resistance (Syndrome X). This is explained in my book titled FATTY LIVER – You can Reverse it. It is not hard to reverse fatty liver.

  53. I have also been diagnosed with fatty liver. Yes I am overweight but not because I am a couch potato, eat bad foods or over indulge with alcohol. I see others with poor lifestyle choices and they are slim and have bundles of energy. Where is the fairness???!!

    • Hi Jill
      Yes your story is common and it is true — if you have Syndrome X it is very hard to lose weight – indeed it is impossible, unless you get your insulin levels down. this can be achieved by modest exercise, taking Glucemic Balance capsules and a powerful liver formula. Avoid all grains (wheat, rye, barley, rice , corn) as they cause insulin resistance in people like you. I see many people like you and they get depressed because they really try very hard. knowledge is the key – it is NOT will power, it is know power that you need. to get more empathy call my naturopath Christine Ki in Phoenix, if you live in USA. Call 1888 75 LIVER

  54. I have a book from 1951 that describes Fatty Liver, linking it to diabetes and insulin problems.

    • Hi Kevin
      Wow that’s an antique ! Of course in those days fatty liver disease was not common, unlike the epidemic it has become today! In those days insulin was not measured in the lab
      thanks for your feedback

  55. I don’t drink alcohol, cholesterol is normal in fact I don’t have any symptoms. I do have crohns and I do take a sleep aid daily… I am also wondering if the sleep aids caused it

    • Yes- prolonged use of pharmaceuticals can induce fatty liver. Crohns can be flared by Gluten (as a side note) so I hope you are Gluten Free.

    • Hi Cyndilenz
      Genetic factors can predispose a person to many types of liver diseases – such as congenital metabolic diseases, such as glycogen storage disease, Polycystic liver disease, iron induced liver disease etc. Genetic factors can make a person insulin resistant, which can lead to fatty liver indirectly. In other words if a person genetically predisposed to insulin resistance (also known as Syndrome X) becomes overweight because they eat excess carbs/don’t exercise etc., they are very likely to get a fatty liver from the high insulin. But this is easily reversed if they are motivated. of all the organs in the body, the liver is most able to repair and regenerate itself

      • husband was diagnosis with a fatty liver & Dr.-she works with diabetes, she told him to take 250mg of METORMIN HCL 1/2 OF 500 MG PERDAY. I don’t believe he should be on that! What do u think?

        • Id be recommending another opinion. Perhaps if you read the publication “Diabetes you can reverse it” that will help you. I hope the Dr told your husband he should totally eliminate Grains if he has any hope of reversing diabetes. “Fatty Liver- You Can Reverse IT” will also be of use and assist in improving your husbands health naturally. Pharmaceuticals are not always necessary nor are they the only option.

        • My dr. Put me on Metformin also

  56. Thank you. I’ll be eating a lot of oranges. 115 pound, never more than 7 drinks a week and fit with a fatty liver. I took unisom sleep tabs for 7 years to help sleep with 3 small children always waking . Maybe unisom caused it?

    • Hi Lauren
      the sleeping tablet could have caused it, but it would not be the only factor. Diet is important, so is exercise. perhaps you were not eating enough fresh fruits and vegetables? You could also have been exposed to environmental toxins. Take a powerful liver formula for 3 months and see the difference. also get my book titled FATTY LIVER – You Can Reverse It

  57. A Fascinating,very good topic
