Fatty Liver

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 provides:

  • 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
  • Folate (as L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF))….240mcg
  • Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin)….60mcg
  • Biotin….60mcg
  • Calcium pantothenate (equiv pantothenic acid 22mg)(B5)….27.5mg
  • Zinc (as zinc oxide) 7mg
  • Selenium (as selenomethionine) 50mcg
  • Livatone® Plus Nutritive base 379mg Taurine, N – Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), phosphatidyl choline from GMO free soya lecithin, broccoli powder, L-Glutamine , Glycine, Inositol, natural caretenoids, (Camelia sinensis (green tea) extract, L – glutathione)
  • Veggie Cap, Hypromellose, Magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide.

DOES NOT contain genetically modified(GMO) ingredients.

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

    • Hi Heather,

      A fatty liver is a common occurrence after gallbladder removal.
      We recommend you eliminate grains, dairy, sugar, processed food and takeaway meals.
      There is more information in this article: https://www.liverdoctor.com/what-should-you-eat-if-you-have-fatty-liver/
      There is an excellent diet plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily to replace the bile that is no longer coming from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.

  2. Is dextrose ok to use as a sugar supplement?

    • Hi Greg,

      We prefer to use Stevia as a natural sweetener.

      • Is there a particular form of stevia or brand to look out for? I tried some drops and they were awful

        • Hi Caroline,

          Not particularly. Perhaps you should try stevia in powder form.

  3. I was diagnosed with Fatty Liver a couple of months ago.. although I have had discomfort in the liver area for quite some time.

    If I wrote a recipe for disaster it would have been my lifestyle.

    Working from home drinking lots of coffee with lots of sugar, sweet foods plus chocolate, pies, fried foods.. almost every day and little to no exercise… although my keyboard skills are second to none 🙂

    I was hitting the booze way too hard, easy to do when everything is so close to hand.

    Needless to say – I became obese.

    About 2 years ago I decided to get out of the house and decided on a career change, it includes a much more physical working day. But at weekends I kept on hitting the booze and eating all the wrong stuff daily. Then just before Christmas I felt really unwell and had a sharp pain in my liver area.
    Alarm bells rang.. so it was off to the docs and had a blood test and a liver scan… fatty liver confirmed.

    That was it, a turning point. I still drink coffee, but without sugar… all the unhealthy food gone. Now eating maybe the best diet possible, very similar to that recommended in this article… to be fair I pretty much guessed my way through this. The booze is out… not a drop since Christmas… just over 2 months now.

    Although it’s been a challenge with varying degrees of good and bad days, this has now evolved into good weeks and the occasional bad day or two.

    At weekends I do regular exercise and I now feel I’ve turned a corner. This week I feel almost like a new person, there’s been no noticeable discomfort in either my stomach / liver area and the pain that had been on and off behind my right shoulder has gone. I also had itchy skin and this seems to have gone too.

    Needless to say, removing all the added sugar, booze, pies and fries has resulted in shedding a lot of fat. I haven’t been weighing myself but I’m slimmer and look a fair bit younger too.

    I just wanted to share this with you people, because I want you to know that if you want to, you can beat fatty liver… my fight isn’t over – there’s more blood tests planned etc, the fight goes on and I’m feeling confident now.

    Best of luck to anyone in similar circumstances, you are not alone!

  4. I have recently found that my 9 year old son has fatty liver disease, we have a fairly healthy diet as a family we have 6 children and always cook from fresh. I am not sure as yet of the severity, but I am scared, I want to help him as quickly as possible. If you have any advice or ideas of how to reverse the damage done I would very much appreciate it.

    • Hi Stacey,

      Fatty liver can be caused by a high intake of carbohydrates and refined foods such as pasta, bread, cereals, processed foods, etc.
      It can also be caused by overexposure to environmental toxins or large amounts of medication or antibiotics.
      Fatty can be reversed by following the diet in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      For more information see this article: https://www.liverdoctor.com/what-should-you-eat-if-you-have-fatty-liver/
      Dr Cabot recommends he take
      Livatone Plus Powder 1/2 tsp daily to improve liver function.

  5. Hello,
    Im 33 years old, male.
    I have one gallstone in my gallbladder and i’m taking Ursodeoxycholic Acid for dissolving the stone and hopefully to pass it through bile duct and out of my body. I also have fatty liver, my question is: 1) Can I use LivatonePlus at the same time that I am using Ursodeoxycholic Acid? Is there any conflicts?

    I have bought the book: FATTY LIVER – You Can Reverse It, and I have already changed my diet and started exercising 1 our a day, 5 times a week. I am 187 CM tall, and currently weight 108 KG, and my waist is 104 cm. I am aiming to reach 90 KG and waist 90 cm.

    Can you recommend anything for my case ?!

    Waiting for your answer.

    Thank you,

    • Hi Kosova,

      There should be no issues taking Livatone Plus with Ursodeoxycholic Acid. We recommend 2 caps twice daily of the Livatone Plus.
      To help shrink the stone and pass it I would recommend raw juicing. There are some excellent recipes for gallstones and fatty liver in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your Life’.
      Dr Cabot has written the definitive book ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally’ which provides instruction for gallbladder health, how to dissolve gallstones and keep your gallbladder in a stone free state for the rest of your life.
      We recommend
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily to help with essential fat absorption.
      These supplements and books are available here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com
      We recommend you eliminate or minimise grains, dairy, processed food and takeout meals and base your diet on good protein (chicken,lean meat,seafood,eggs) good fats, fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.

  6. I just want to share my story. I’m not looking for advice, per se. I just began reading ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.

    On August 11, 2012, I experienced an acute, sudden-onset “attack”. I am female, and was 46 years old, at the time. It was a bit scary, but was over in a few minutes. When it occurred 3 more times that day, with worsening symptoms, I went to a nearby walk-in clinic. That doctor actually laughed at me. In addition to having zero concern for the severity of my completely abnormal symptoms, he explained that, being a Saturday, he couldn’t do any blood work, and suggested I go to the local emergency room, if I wanted more tests done.

    My symptoms worsened and continued daily for a year, while I saw various doctors. The nicest simply shrugged. The worst implied I was making it up. One even told me I was wasting his time. When a nurse suggested I was imagining it all, my (annoyed) husband stood up for me. He barked, “She’s as tough as a horse! If she says something’s wrong, something’s wrong!!” (Such a good friend.)

    It was all to no avail. There was something fundamentally wrong with me, at…like…the cellular level, but it didn’t show on standard tests. My vision was blurred. I had pressure in my head. I’d have bouts of going cold, to the point of whole body trembling. Heck, I’ve had whole-body muscle spasms with no associated temperature extreme sensation. My heart would pound hard enough to wake me up, yet my heart rate and BP were always excellent. I had fantastic heart arrhythmias, at times. I always had “crashing fatigue” after episodes. Any visual task would elicit the worst symptoms, incl. head pressure, scalp numbness & tingling, blurred vision, and more. I’d usually have a quick bout of diarrhea before falling asleep for an hour.

    Long story short, I was left to try to diagnose myself, and I concluded my problem was likely very unusual perimenopause symptoms, given my age and the fact so many bodily systems were involved.. While I had that sudden-onset incident in 2012, I looked back and saw how I’d gradually been slowing down for the previous few years.

    Jump ahead to 2016… I’d been gradually getting better. Alas, I’d also been steadily gaining weight, and unable to lose any, short of starvation. And I mean that. If I eat anything, an apple, I will, at best, not lose weight. Intense exercise, it became quite apparent, caused weight gain. (I did that very intense ‘Insanity’ program, for example and, far from “a year’s worth of weight loss in 60 days”, I gained 2 lbs. On a more day-to-day basis, I continued gaining weight after I started running a 5k every morning…that kind of thing. The more intense or longer duration my workouts became, the more likely I was to gain weight, rather than lose. In fact, I went on strike, so to speak, and took a week off from exercise. I lost 6 lbs in 7 days! But it gradually came back.)

    Despite a painfully-healthy diet of mostly dark, leafy greens, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and beans, I was not losing weight and not physically improving.

    Suddenly, one day in November 2016, I awoke feeling “off”. I skipped my morning workout and breakfast, as I felt particularly nauseas. (I eat very little. “Not much ghrelin,” I used to joke. On average, I eat maybe 800-1,000 cal/day. At this time, though, I was eating that much maybe every other day.) That morning, I prepared a matcha green tea and sat down to drink it. Immediately I felt “wrong”. Istantly, my body leapt to my feet, without much of a conscious decision on my part. I couldn’t sit. It was too uncomfortable. Lying down wasn’t much better, though. There was massive pressure around my middle. I immediately assumed either liver or diaphragm inflammation. I was in bed for 4 days (mind you, in the previous 50 years of my life, I’d never been “sick in bed” for ONE day, let alone 4). I couldn’t find a comfortable position. I didn’t eat for 4 days. (Didn’t lose any weight.) I made a conditional doctor’s appointment for the following Monday, if symptoms persisted. They did.

    I will say that while I’m gaining weight, I don’t have a bloated, distended belly. Rather, I have some soft, sub-cu. belly fat, and am developing what you call a “liver roll”. (At least, that’s how I’m referring to it. I’ve never had fat around my ribs, ’til now.)

    My relatively-new-to-me GP was unconcerned by my account. She ordered blood tests and an abdominal ultrasound, though. The symptoms eventually passed, and I felt better.

    When I went for a follow-up appointment, she mentioned I have a fatty liver. All she said was, “I don’t know what you’re eating…” and left it open for me to chime in. Baffled by this diagnosis, I explained that I eat a very healthy, mostly plant-based diet, and the only fats I consume with any regularity or quantity are olive oil, and a vegan margarine. I don’t eat any fast food or fried food, and very little junk food. I stick to a mostly low-GL diet. For about 6 months, I’d added a tsp. of coconut oil to my diet, although not every day. While there is fat in the nuts, seeds, and avocados I eat, the quantity is rather low. (I eat 2 Brazil nuts OR 4 almonds OR 8-10 pistachios…that kind of thing.) My doctor just shrugged. Again, I was left to do my own research.

    Funny enough, I discovered a fatty liver is not uncommon amongst those with PCOS. I have PCOS, although it was never a problem for me. I had the irregular menstrual cycles, oily skin and large pores. I was naturally-thin (until my 40s), with a BMI generally around 16. I assumed my recent weight gain was a combination of the insulin resistance associated with PCOS (although it remained a mystery why it was only now a problem), and perimenopause, which I’d pretty much concluded I was in the middle of. But, that terrible pressure around my upper abdomin had dissipated, and I just tried to continue eating healthy and exercising (even though years of it had produced zero positive results).

    But, today, the upper abdominal pressure is back. I don’t know why.. My diet has been über-healthy, lately, and I haven’t missed a morning workout, recently…well…’til today. I have to do something, though. That’s how I found my way here.

    I’ve begun reading the book, and right away I can say that I don’t have most of the symptoms. I don’t snore or have skin rashes or anything like that. I suppose I could sleep better. I do have very little appetite (but that has always been the case), however it has only worsened as I’ve gotten older. Indeed, it is not uncommon for me to go a day where I don’t eat at all. I rarely feel hungry. I sometimes feel nauseas, but it is not a regular thing. I have occasional bouts of diarrhea. I have never been constipated. My BP is generally <100/<70 or even 60. In any event, you get the idea. Some symptoms ring true, but I don't have most of 'em.

    I suppose the purchase of the book indicates the presence of "hope", at least on some level. However, having tried so many things, and already eating so little, but extremely healthy foods, and doing regular exercise, with nothing positive to show for it, to say I'm skeptical would be an understatement. I will finish reading the book, and consider the information. Hopefully, it will help me turn this corner, and get back to being me. On that note, I looked my doctor in the eyes, at our last appointment, and said, "This person sitting here in front of you is not me. It may look kind of like me, but it is not me." I'd hoped that simply getting to menopause would be my saviour. But I may have to do more… …Address my fatty liver, specifically, if I ever hope to get back to normal.

    Thanks for all the info. Most of us are left to diagnose and treat ourselves.

    • Wow,,,,you went through the same thing that I am now finally my Dr did the right test after 2 1/2 years LATER!!!!!! anyways she said I have fatty liver and a rare kidney disease called nephrocalcinoses and my blood pressure has been 220/110 and my pulse is 150 and I would have these Spikes all day long extreme fatigue where I was sleeping 14 hours a day for weeks you know and I told my doctor this is not normal if anybody knows my body it’s me and I’m telling you something’s wrong and they finally found it I go to get tomorrow for a CAT scan so they can get in-depth on what I guess is going on with my kidneys but you know I was feeling like I was going to die I mean that’s how scary it was so I totally sympathize with you I think I doctors all need to start pulling their heads out of their ass please get back to me so I know how you’re doing and if you got everything taken care of peace and love Kristy

    • Jody, have you ruled out heavy metals, parasites (Candida yeast could give all sorts of symptoms, but it feeds on sugars, and you don’t seem to eat a lot of that)? A Naturopathic doctor may be more helpful. Good luck.

      • Hello,
        I was diagnosed with moderate fatty liver in July 2016. My enzymes were elevated: Glutamyl 369, Alanine 111, Aspartate 72. After I followed the diet and taking Livaton plus they decreased to 177/55/33.

        Would you please suggest if I need to add also Ox Bile capsules,NAC 600 mg,Glutamine Powder, Magneziuim Ultrapotent and Magnezium Complete.

        And also if Livaton Plus with turmeric is better for me ?

        My gallbladder was removed in 1993 and I did not have any problems until now.

        • Hi Yna,

          We suggest you take

          Ox Bile capsules 1 to 2 at the beginning of meals three times daily, this will replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder for essential fat absorption

          NAC 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster.

          In addition you can also take

          Magnesium ultra potent powder 1/4 to one level metric teaspoon daily to 100-200 mL of water or juice, OR

          Magnesium complete 2 to 4 tablets daily to help reduce stress or anxiety and promote a deep, restful sleep.

          These supplements are available here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com

          Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, so is very beneficial for a fatty liver amongst other things.

  9. Hello Doctor,
    I had tuberculosis infection in March 2014 and got 10 months treatment and completed successfully. After that I experienced a sudden weight gain. And now I am much more bulky. I drink hardly 4 to 5 times in a month. In abdomen sonography there is remark from doctor that ‘ Fatty changes in the lever seen’. What medicine should I take and what would be the preferable opinion suitable for me.

  10. I’m just trying to briefly explain my medical issues. I was on migraine medication since 2006 (main problem was nausea, unable to eat sufficient diet, vomiting, anxiety). Things improve after this medication, able to eat properly and much healthy person. From Jan’12, suddenly I see huge amount of hair fall, almost lost 50% hair, in June got upper back pain, which diagnosed as gallstones. In July ’12, I had a surgery to remove the gallbladder.
    Since then have diarrhea, foods not properly digested, specially milk, eggs, non-vegs, etc. I thought it’s because of bile as I no longer have gallbladder, not harming me so I thought let be. I already had huge hair loss, which continues, gone for full body checkup in 2013, which showed Vitamin B12, D3, iron deficiency. I’m taking B12, D3, iron supplements from 3 years but see no effect.

    If you’re eating plenty of iron or calcium, how could you possibly have a deficiency? Unfortunately, it is possible. No-one ever mentioned taking HCL, digestive enzymes or ox bile. I worked it out for myself and just need your advice. I can’t believe the medical community are so negligent as to just rip out gallbladders without any advice.

    If you have had your gallbladder removed, then you need a permanent bile replacement to digest your fats?

    • Hi Allen,

      Yes, you are most correct, you will need an ox-bile supplement for the rest of your life.

      It is very important to absorb dietary fats and without bile this is almost impossible.

      Often, when gall stones have been a problem in the past it was because there was insufficient bile being produced by the liver, leading to a build-up of metabolites, which often leads to generalised inflammation.

      Dietary nutrients can be taken but they also need to be absorbed. If you are experiencing intestinal inflammation or Leaky Gut, poor absorption is often a side effect.

      Hair loss may be an autoimmune condition, arise from lowered hormones or increased stress.

      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking

  13. My name is palash 31year old I have fatty liver and pain right side near my liver. now Please give me advice which medicine I can take for this matter. Thanks

    • Dear Palash,

      I recommend you take 2 caps Livatone Plus twice daily.
      You should also take 2 caps twice daily of NAC, but 2 hours away from food.
      You need to follow the eating principles in our book ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      You should read this article: https://www.liverdoctor.com/what-should-you-eat-if-you-have-fatty-liver/

    • Palash — There is no one pill or medication you can take to reverse fatty liver disease. You need to see a gastroenterologist or hepatologist and be examined. The doctor will help the most. Usually, progress in reversing this disease is made by changes in diet (no sugar, no potatoes, no bread, and more fresh fruits and vegetables. I have fatty liver disease and I just found pictures from a recent surgery that they took of my liver. Please, this is a disease that has the potential to make us very very sick or dead. See your doctor soon!

  14. I had an ultrasound 5 years ago and was told I had a fatty liver, it was after I had lost a lot of weight, 80 lbs, in just a few months. I went to the doctor then because I was getting pain in my right side by the ridge of my ribs. He said that the only thing proven was to take 800 units of Vitamin E, which I did for 6 months and the pain went away. Several months ago my side pain returned, but much worse than before. I first switched to a low carb diet did not really notice huge difference, then found your site and just switched to no carb a week ago. I also just started taking your Livatone and NAC stuff a few days ago. I started with just one of each per day. How fast can I ramp that up and what are the possible side effects? Because my side pain is particularly bad. My blood tests over the years have never shown any liver issues. And I am not diabetic. I have a solid 50-60 pounts to lose, but I want to do it slowly and NOT like I did before. My energy level is ok, not problematic, but I am not the energizer bunny either. But right now the pain is my biggest concern. How quickly could I expect my side pain to go away? And should I be doing anything different?

    • Dear Wayne,

      Please obtain a copy of Dr Cabot’s Book, ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’ and follow the eating plan to reverse your fatty liver.

      This diet will assist you to also lose your weight in a slower, more controlled way while your liver clears it’s fatty infiltrations.

    • Chic2@hotmail.com – If you would, message me, I have the same issue; it would be nice to talk to someone else who knows what I’m going through. I just found out about the condition and have been searching the Internet for help because my nurse told me zilch. I hope you get better soon.

  15. My abdominal ultrasound showed “fatty liver” and “slightly nodular surface of liver”. Going to see my doctor this week to discuss results but am wondering what the “slightly nodular surface” means. Could that be from the fatty liver? I can’t find anything regarding that on the internet, everything points to cirrhosis, which seems unreasonable since I never drink.

    • Dear Gertie,

      Your ultrasound did not offer the degree of fatty infiltration in your liver and as it increases, it may well progress to cirrhosis.

      Dr Cabot has written the book ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’ which includes an easy to follow eating plan to return your liver to its fat free status.

      Take heart from the word ‘slight’ because this indicates it is going to take less time to return it to the smooth surface of a healthy liver.

      A nodular surface may also be an indication of a selenium deficiency.

      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking

      Livatone Plus – 1 capsule twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing.

  16. MY DAD recognizes to fatty liver by hepatitis B- last week he admitted in hospital by liver water dr. remove 3 liter water her stomach.now he lots of pain .do you help which dr. is best for that treatment.

    • Dear Sushma,


      The doctor that deals with the liver is called a Hepatologist and it usually takes considerable time to get an appointment.

      In the meantime, Dr Cabot strongly recommends your father begins eating a diet high in vegetables, preferably as juices, to provide easy to digest vitamins and minerals.

      Dr Cabot also recommends you father begins taking

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement hastens liver healing. This supplement is the precursor nutrient of glutathione; the body’s strongest anti-oxidant.

  17. My daughter experienced a 25 pound weight gain in a fairly short time period (12 months). I think it was a lot of processed food, fast food and alcohol. She has subsequently lost about 15 pounds of it but now has horrible stomach pain when she drinks alcohol. She did have blood work done in July and the tests did not show a problem with her liver but I think it has got to be her liver that is having trouble digesting the alcohol. She has really cut back on consumption but even the smallest amount can cause discomfort. Her diet has been cleaned up but do you think the Livatone would help her or do you think there may be something else going on?

    • Dear Polly,

      Although blood tests may be showing no problems with your daughter’s liver, a Fatty Liver condition may still be present and it is worthwhile to have a liver ultrasound to determine if this is the case.

      A liver with fatty infiltrations is unable to satisfactorily metabolise alcohol.

      Dr Cabot recommends she begin taking

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. As you will see from the attached pamphlet this supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing. This supplement is the precursor nutrient of glutathione; the body’s strongest anti-oxidant.

      Please let us know the results of the ultrasound.

  18. Hi Jessah:
    Thank you for all your inputs in this forum. I was diagnosed to have fat deposits in my liver
    with my liver enzymes slightly above normal (52) and Doctor advised me to reduce fats and eat more raw vegetables and fruits:

    Could you please suggest if its fine for me to follow the diet plan below for next 3 months along with exercise before I go for another ultra sound:

    Based on the little bit of reading I have done online I am trying to follow the following diet:
    1. Morning Breakfast (1 cup): one of following option
    a. Roasted Cauliflower with carrots, cabbage with olive oil.
    b. Legume Salad (Kidney beans, Garbanzo beans, raw tomato/onion, mint and corriander leaves) OR
    c. Whole grain Oatmeal OR

    2. Lunch:
    2 100% whole wheat bread + 3 Small Indian Roti (made with whole wheat durum flour) along
    with cooked legumes/Lentils.

    3. Evening Snack:
    Raw Salad (Brocolli, Cucumber, Lettuce, Cabbage, Cauliflower) with
    Fruits (Half avacado + strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry)

    4. Dinner:
    2 100% whole wheat bread + 4 Small Indian Roti (made with whole wheat durum flour) along
    with cooked legumes/lentils.

    Vegetable juice (Carrot, beet root, celery, ginger root, kale/spinach): 2 times a week

    Exercise: 5 days a week
    Either 25 – 30 mins brisk walking (2 days @ week)
    OR 15-20 mins running with minor weight lifting (4 days @ week)

    I used to weigh 56 kg. 5ft 2 inch, Male. Recently i lost some weight with exercise (Running + cycling) and down to 52 kg and lost some belly fat. I want to atleast maintain a weight of 56 kg
    by eating a healthy diet with exercise (including some weight exercise to build some muscle mass)

    • Dear James,

      When people are diagnosed with having a fatty liver and elevated liver enzymes we recommend grains be eliminated or reduced from the diet.
      Everything is fine except for the bread, roti and oatmeal.
      Look at having grains that are more nutrient dense and lower in GI such as brown rice, quinoa and buckwheat.
      I recommend you purchase our book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      There is further information and plenty of appropriate recipes in there.

      Kind Regards,

      • Thank you so much Jessah for the response. I have been having a lot of difficult time in figuring out what food items i can make it a part of my diet (besides Raw vegetables) since I don’t eat Non Vegetarian food.

        Can you please suggest if having Oven baked Vegetables like Cauliflower, Brocolli, Asparagus, Brinjal etc. with extra virgin olive oil (I also add 2 small garlic cloves, some black pepper and salt) is fine ? I want to avoid eating them as fried.

        Also, I altered my diet plan from having about 12 – 14 small indian roti’s (made from whole wheat flour) during lunch and dinner with vegetables (mainly consisting of potatoes) … to only having 6-8 Roti’s with non potato vegetables (legumes mainly) and eating more salads / raw vegetables. It gives sufficient energy for day to day work.
        Similarly, I included 2-3 100% whole wheat bread per day into the diet (when I read that it mainly contains fiber) and is comparatively better.

        Do you suggest in eliminating them completely or reducing them would be ok ? If so then is it fine to reduce them to eating once in the day (about 4-5) ?

        Thanks and best Regards,

        • Dear James,

          Oven baked is fine, frying isn’t great anyway. If not oven baked, steaming vegetables is another good option.
          Those alterations are good as it reduces your carbohydrate intake.
          It’s fine to reduce them, but depends on the differences you notice in yourself.
          If you feel like you haven’t lost much weight after a while, you should try eliminating grains all together for 2 weeks.
          And yes, I would try to eat them only once a day, no more than two pieces of bread.

          Kind Regards,

  19. hi doc my name melissa i just find out i had two livers i have fatty livers i always heard you only have one liver not two i dont know if i need get second opion on this or what to do am comfuse at this min

    • Dear Melissa,

      Dr Cabot recommends you obtain a copy of her book ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’ and follow the eating plan closely until all traces of fatty liver are no longer seen on ultrasound.

      Dr Cabot also recommends you begin taking

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement hastens liver healing.

  20. Hi doc! I was diagnosed with severe fatty liver. Im a 34 years old, female and no kids yet. What can i do to improve my liver? What diet should i eat for breakfast,lunch and dinner? I badly needed your help thanks.

    • Dear Tessa,

      You need to avoid sugar, refined foods and processed foods.
      Focus on eating sources of good protein, good fats and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
      You should also take Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily and NAC 2 caps twice daily.
      Raw juicing is excellent also. For more info see Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your Life’.
      You can see more information in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      It is also important to get some regular exercise in.

  21. Hello. I was diagnosed with moderate fatty liver..i changed my diet and got myself checked again after 5 months..my liver profile improved in some areas, but my ultrasound report was the same as before.. it remained Moderate and said “no changes since the previous examination”. Hence I would like to know how long does it take for the ultrasound reports to improve? How long would it take for my Moderate fatty liver to change to “Mild”?

    • Dear Peter,

      You need to eliminate sugar and grains from your diet.
      You should start raw juicing, see our book ‘Raw Juicing Can Save Your Life’.
      You need to focus on incorporating high protein foods, good fats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables into your diet.
      You should also participate in a regular form of exercise and drink plenty of water.
      I recommend you take Livatone Plus – 2 caps daily and N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. You should also take Glutamine Powder – 1 teaspoon in water twice daily to calm, soothe, and heal your gut lining and protect your digestive system from damage.
      It will take between 3 to 6 months for your moderate fatty liver to change to mild.
      I recommend you follow the eating plan in our book ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      Let us know how you get on.

      Kind Regards,

  22. Hello,

    I went to my Doctor, had an ultrasound done and they told me there were no stones in the lover and only small polyps in my gallbladder which they said were too small to pose a problem. But I still have fatty liver deposits in my stools suffer from fatigue and chest constriction. The only thing he said was that my liver enzymes were high. Will coffee enemas help with the above suggestions or should these be avoided? SHould I find another doctor or go back for more tests? If so, which ones? I have also lost weight, not gained weight since March of this year. i’ve tried the raw food diet but the liver still will not “flush”. I feel better when I eat some healthy fat but I cannot seem to get the proportions correct. What should I do?

    • Dear Joel,

      Fatty infiltrations in the liver are often the result of a diet that may have too much carbohydrate or damaged fats that tend to be found in processed food and take-out meals.
      Depending on where you live, High Fructose Corn Syrup in many processed foods may be contributing to the fatty liver.
      Coffee enemas stimulate and detoxify the liver, but on their own will not resolve fatty liver.
      Moderate amounts of good fats like avocadoes, high quality virgin olive oil and coconut oil, hemp seed oil, tahini, nuts etc. are very good for the metabolism.
      Moderate amounts of protein are also essential.
      Lots of low carbohydrate vegetables are our nutritional powerhouses and substantial servings are encouraged at least twice daily.
      When you say you are losing weight, rather than gaining weight are you burning fat or losing muscle.
      As we age muscle loss is a considerable health issue and to prevent this we recommend a whey protein product like Synd X powder, glutamine to improve absorption of nutrients and weight bearing exercise daily.

      Kind Regards,

  23. Hi, what about mega doses of vit C for reversing fatty liver?

    • The Mayo Clinic says it has some value for cirrhosis.
      There is evidence that excessive amounts of ascorbate may be implicated in the formation of glucose.
      In the absence of sufficient exercise, high vitamin c MAY contribute to fatty liver

  24. Great ¡V I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs as well as related info ended up being truly easy to do to access.

    one day as i was browsing on the internet i saw a post of a man called Alex testifying of how Ajayi cure him from Hepatitis disease after 3yrs, i decide to give him a try then he prepare a herbal remedy for me and send it to me through. by His grace, last March, I went to two hospitals to do fresh tests on hepatitis B and the results were negative. Help tell the world that hepatitis B Virus is curable if they follow the advice of the doctors and believe God for healing. Thanks Ajayi once again…

  28. hi i m 28 years old. diagnosed with grade 2 fatty liver due to high alcohol intake. how to get it cured. was diagnosed with grade 1 fatty liver at the age of 23 but did not stop drinking. i have stopped drinking now completely and also have started physical exercises like jogging etc on a regular basis. will it be normal again? your reply will be highly appreciated.

    • Please read our book called “Fatty Liver – you can reverse it” – this
      book will tell you exactly what you need to do to get your liver back to
      proper working order, a direction I would strongly suggest for you.
      Your liver is an amazing organ and it is possible to reverse your fatty
      liver. If your liver is fatty, it is no longer able to function the way
      it was designed – that is, to be a fat burning organ which filters
      toxins from your body. You are lucky to have found out now that your
      liver has this problem because you have the time to fix it. Some people
      unfortunately do not find out about their liver problem until they have
      cirrhosis and, unlike a fatty liver, cirrhosis is not reversible.
      if you do nothing about this problem, it will not go away by itself.
      There is no one single magic pill to fix this but you CAN make it better
      by changing the types of foods you eat, taking a liver tonic like
      LivaTone Plus which has been formulated by Dr Cabot to support the phase 1 and 2 detox
      pathways and then make a commitment to yourself to get your health
      back. Many thousands of people from all over the world have found
      success in reversing their fatty livers – all it takes is knowing what
      you need to do, why you need to do it and then doing it. It has probably
      taken quite a while for your liver to become fatty so expect that it
      could take up to a year to undo the damage sustained so far. But know
      that every single day you are mindful of what you need to do and then
      actually do it, you are one day closer to better health, the weight loss
      you desire and, of course, all your energy back to live life to the
      fullest. Good luck, don’t give up and please keep in touch.

      • I have a question. I am taking metformine for I am diabetic. Could I take any liver capsules like Livatone Plus. I got diagnosed with fatty liver. I wanted to be healthy for my family. Thank you very much.

        • Dear Sally,

          You can most definitely take Livatone Plus, we recommend it for individuals with a fatty liver.
          You should take 2 Livatone Plus caps twice daily and NAC 2 caps twice daily.
          You also need to avoid or reduce grains and sugar.
          Look at eating a good protein sources such as lean red meat, poultry, fish and eggs with every meal.
          Also consume plenty of good quality fats such as deep sea fish, avocado and raw nuts and seeds.
          Raw juicing is excellent also for helping to reverse a fatty liver.

    I am Anshul from India.My father has recently got a test done which has revealed that he suffers from fatty liver disease grade 3 .He never consumes alcohol.He has 95 kg weight and 155 cm height.He is diabetic.He eats meat rarely(thrice an year) and that too in a limited quantity.He feels tired and fatigued and feels his liver portion to be heavy.Please tell me whether at this point ,the disease is reversible or not.If yes,what measures must be taken?Also is this condition near to liver cancer or cirrhosis.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Has he ever had his iron levels checked? He should. I have haemochromatosis and it can cause type two Diabete’s, fatigue, swollen liver, painful swollen joints/Arthritis, depression, Hypothyroidism, Congestive Heart Failure!

    • fatty liver is reversible – read my book, “Fatty Liver – you can reverse it” as this will give all the details and eating plans you need.

  35. Hello, I’m having weight loss surgery in three weeks and am on a 4 week pre-op diet to shrink my liver prior to surgery. I have been told in the past I have a slight fatty liver, unsurprising as I am obese. I am put on meal replacement shakes by the dietitian for my pre-op stage, but I am wondering if you can recommend anything more beneficial in repairing the liver quicker? I want my surgery to be as safe as possible, and am having nightmares about being closed back up on the operating table because my liver is too big. Would you recommend a fruit / vegetable smoothie with added protein powder to be better than typical meal replacement shakes and bars at helping the liver?

    • Many meal replacements and shakes contain sugar. This can impede the reversal of a fatty liver. The Synd-X Protein Powder would be good for you because it is only sweetened with stevia.
      The fastest and safest way to reverse a fatty liver is to follow a lower carbohydrate diet, such as in the book Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It. Taking the liver tonic Livatone Plus would help too.

  36. Hi, Thanks for your response.This is in continuation to my earlier post. My lipid profile test in July’15 showed a total cholesterol of 194mg/dl with Triglyceride 179mg/dl. My alcohol intake is very low and mostly restricted to red wine/beer. So I dont understand how the fatty changes in my liver have developed. Could you provide some insight on this? Does this mean that I should totally stop taking red wine or beer, which in any case is very occasional. Thanks.

    • I’ve never touched alcohol (apart from the amount in sprays/deos and in wound pads) and I’ve hardly smoked 4-5-6 times in my life. My BMI is around 23 which is supposed to be in ideal range. Not obese, only slight belly curve is visible. Still got that, grade 2.

  37. A recent ultrasound scan mentioned mild diffuse fatty changes in liver with focal sparing in right lobe. What precautions need to be taken to address this?

    • This means you have a mild fatty liver. Fortunately this condition is entirely reversible. There is a lot of free information here: https://www.liverdoctor.com/liver/fatty-liver/

  38. Can fatty liver kill a person immediately, my father died of haptitit c.

  39. I have had several liver tests and my alt and a.s.t. have both been high. I am not a heavy drinker, but have been on imipramine for many years now, although I am on only 10 mg currently for the past two years.

    I feel tired and generally do not feel well, especially if I have a drink which is extremely rare.

    Could it be from the Jublia that I recently started taking in January 2015? I stopped in April 2015 when I found out my liver enzymes were high, but it kept going up still, even in late May. I will re-test in September.

    I have always been healthy, and at a very healthy weight, but lost about 10-12 pounds suddenly last year when I was only eating about one meal per day. I have been taking milk thistle and berberine. Any suggestions?

  40. Hi Doctor, I am a 65 year old female. I had my Gallbladder removed overseas when I was 22. They botched it up and I nearly died. I suffer from diarrhea, bloating, nausea and stomach pains constantly. I have had endoscopies and colonoscopies and they cannot find anything wrong. I was not advised on diet after I had the operation. I continued to eat as before. After reading about what happens when you have your Gall Bladder removed I feel that maybe my poor liver needs help. What do you suggest….? Thank you in advance

    • Dear Andrea
      Yes your liver would definitely need help. You might have a fatty liver. You might also have food intolerance.
      An ox bile supplement would probably help your digestion. You might need an elimination diet that excludes common allergens such as dairy products and gluten. The information in our gallbladder book would help you: http://shop.liverdoctor.com/save-your-gallbladder.html

  41. My husband was recently diagnosed with elevated LFTs (790.6) and CIDP (357.81). He has neuropathy and have been receiving IVIG treatment once every 3 weeks for the past 5 years. He takes tylenol with every treatment.Should he try the liver tonic?

    • Dear Betty. Yes your husband could take Livatone Plus. It will help to increase the amount of glutathione in his liver. Tylenol depletes the body of glutathione.

  42. I was diagnosed with fatty liver, I got a copy of the Sonogram and it said, .5 mm cyst left lobe, Pancreas 6 mm simple appearing cyst at the margin of the head and adjacent to the liver. Multiple gallstones but no wall thickening. What stage am I at??? Learned a lot from this web site and plan to eat more healthy. What can you tell me about numbness of my feet, just started a few months ago. Thank you

  43. Hi doctor,My liver is with fat.My liver function is not bad,but i have some pain,i want to know what i do,please kindly request me.

  44. Is anyone here knowledgable in how to treat the symptoms of Floroquinolone toxicity. Tendon and ligament damage and the disks in my back were affected, for starters.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    Hallo, I am 53 years old, have been diagnosed with fatty liver as well as liver hemangiomas about 7 months ago. I would like to know why is it impossible to get a product like tmg in south africa. It seems you have to work through a homeopath to get it, even if I am diagnosed by a specialist and I have a mr done 6 weeks ago. It seems like tmg is an unknown miracle methyl “donor”, which does wonders for fatty liver and other things as well (bloodsugar, high blood pressure, immune system etc.). We only have one company who sells tmg, but even if you try and get it, it’s been taken off the internet online route. Why is it so difficult to get if it is such a wonderful product?

    • Dear Julia

      Unfortunately we are not aware of the reason you cannot purchase trimethylglycine in South Africa.

  46. Hello Drs. I’d like to ask. Is serrapeptase good to take for a fatty liver since serrapeptase is good for cleansing the body, would it also cleanse the liver also of toxins and/ or fat?

  47. Munawar Farooq

    How much time does it take to reverse fatty liver condition?

  48. Hi, My name is Bonnie and I have a lot of different health problems, heart, COPD, diabetic, high blood pressure, bi-polar, that deal I call harden of the arteries, fatty liver. I had open heart surgery at about 46 years old, my whole family has these same problems with the heart and arteries, my grandpa has something wrong with his kidney’s. Anyhow, I also smoke but don’t drink booze of any kind and never have, I was raised on home grown food and wildlife, very often had store bought foods, I am not a big meat eater, I love deer, fish and turkey and chicken even rabbits. My doctor said there is nothing they can do with a fatty liver but diet and told me not to buy processed foods and eat fresh vegetable’s and a lot of fish. I was very young when the doctors in California told me that my liver produced to much bad things in my blood and put me on medicine and that was in 1987 and I have been taking that ever since. I would love to do something to help my liver get healthier and the last pictures showed it was 40 percent fat already. I had no clue I had a fatty liver until the middle of my stomach started hurting. Right in between my breast, just a little lower and always was fatter there. Anyhow, I would love to hear your thoughts on this. I have so much medicine I have to take and sick of that also but can’t live without it. Thanks for the great information. Bonnie

    • Bonnie the best diet to reverse fatty liver is one that excludes grains, sugar and dairy products. This would also help your diabetes. Your doctor’s dietary advice is correct. You would benefit from following the diet in the book Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It.

  49. Hi Dr.,
    First of all, what a great job, It is not easy to find someone with so much knowledge about fatty liver, please keep up with the good works. Also I would really appreciate if you could give me some tips on how I can heal my condition. I’m 34 years old male, with the following; fatty-liver, hypertension, high cholesterol, and anxiety, I’m currently on losartan and fenofibrate, my total cholesterol untreated is over 300 and my triglycerides 900 to 1,000, sugar is not bad 100. I weight 202lb and I need to lose 20lb in fat all concentrated on my abdomen. On the past 2 weeks I’ve went to a nutritionist and I’m currently on a 0 carb 0 sugar diet which made me lose 7lb, I have been burning 500 calories on a treadmill every day and reducing my daily calories intake by 500 to 750 points. What could you suggest me to improve on my diet, to actually work towards on healing my liver once I reach my ideal weight 180lb?

    Kindest Regards

    • It sounds like you are on the right track.
      Make sure you consume lots of vegetables, protein and healthy fats. There’s a detailed eating plan in Dr Cabot’s book Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It.
      Milk thistle, selenium and n-acetyl cysteine all help to improve liver health and are found in Livatone Plus capsules.

  50. Hi Dr, I was having pain in my abdomen and went to the ED. The Dr did an ultrasound because they thought it was my gallbladder, ultrasound turned up that I had fatty enzymes around my liver. I have had blood work few times a year because I have PCOS. DR always checks my liver and I have never had negative results. How quick can fatty liver come on? I’m overweight due to my PCOS. Is it too late now that I am having pain in my side?

    • Most women with PCOS have insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a big risk factor for developing a fatty liver.
      A fatty liver usually takes at least a few months to develop. It’s definitely not too late to repair it.

  51. Tony Visp[etto

    I recently had an abdominal aortic aneurism ultra sound performed that cleared me of that condition. My family practitioner contacted me stating that the results were negative and that I need not worry about AAA. She did tell me that it seemed that I had a fatty liver even though my blood tests did not show any high enzyme levels (normal). Would the blood enzymes be the first indicator for a fatty liver or is the elevated enzymes the first indication? What comes first the egg or the chicken?

  52. lakshminarayanan

    thanks for your details

  53. Hello, I am 34 years old, and just had my gall bladder removed. The ultra sound showed a fatty liver. I am in a lot of pain, swollen around my liver. I started taking Liver tonic, and waiting on my Ox Bile. I have always worked out, but my diet was garbage. I have change my diet, and found eating red meat hurts my liver more. I am eating a lot of raw veggies with Hummus, is Hummus ok to eat with a fatty liver. I am in a lot of pain, and swollen and I just want get a healthy liver back. Thank you

    • Yes you can eat hummus. You are probably experiencing discomfort after eating red meat because you don’t produce enough digestive enzymes. A supplement of Digestive Enzymes and Betaine Hydrochloride would help enormously. Adding apple cider vinegar to your meals would help too.

    • have you ever had your iron levels checked. Haemochromatosis is an Iron Overload Disorder that often goes diagnosed. It is generally Genetic caused and can lead to many conditions as the iron pockets throughout your organs and joints. It can cause serious life threatening issues, diabete’s, congestive heart failure, enlarged liver, cirrhosis,fatty liver disease, enlarged Spleen, chronic fatigue, depression and if you feel that meat hurts your Liver that could be a signal from your Liver telling you that it is suffering. We have always been told to listen to our bodies well it is for good reason. I wish you well!

  54. christine tomulto

    Hi..im christine..im 23years old..im diagnose with fatty liver and hepatis cyst..what can i do to lessen the pain im feeling everyday?help please..thank you

    • To help protect the liver and improve its ability to perform function Livatone Plus 2 capsules twice daily with or without food, N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) 2 capsules twice daily away from food.

      To help the liver heal the cysts and to improve your energy levels Selenomune Designer Energy Capsules 1 capsule twice daily with food to peak energy and then reduce to 1 capsule daily.

      To reverse your fatty liver please follow the program in Dr Cabot’s recent publication ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’ and in addition as a personal inclusion may I ask you to remove anything containing High Fructose Corn Syrup from your diet.

  55. I had emergency gall bladder surgery and the ultrasound notes reflect fatty liver. Your article was interesting, and described my symptons perfectly. I have an enlarged abdomen area and have a hard time losing weight there so will try your diet.

  56. Hello doctor
    I have visited a doctor recently and was undergone an ultrasound which results showed a fatty liver. I am a 42 year old male weighing around 100 kgs and my height is 1.70 m. I was told to go on a healthy diet and to exercise. can you please advise me on what the healthy diet is and how can I reverse my fatty liver?

    • Hello Makram,
      Please read our book called “Fatty Liver – you can reverse it” – this book will tell you exactly what you need to do to get your liver back to proper working order, a direction I would strongly suggest for you. Your liver is an amazing organ and it is possible to reverse your fatty liver. If your liver is fatty, it is no longer able to function the way it was designed – that is, to be a fat burning organ which filters toxins from your body. You are lucky to have found out now that your liver has this problem because you have the time to fix it. Some people unfortunately do not find out about their liver problem until they have cirrhosis and, unlike a fatty liver, cirrhosis is not reversible.
      Remember, if you do nothing about this problem, it will not go away by itself. There is no one single magic pill to fix this but you CAN make it better by changing the types of foods you eat, taking a liver tonic like LivaTone Plus which I have formulated to support the phase 1 and 2 detox pathways and then make a commitment to yourself to get your health back. Many thousands of people from all over the world have found success in reversing their fatty livers – all it takes is knowing what you need to do, why you need to do it and then doing it. It has probably taken quite a while for your liver to become fatty so expect that it could take up to a year to undo the damage sustained so far. But know that every single day you are mindful of what you need to do and than actually do it, you are one day closer to better health, the weight loss you desire and, of course, all your energy back to live life to the fullest. Good luck, don’t give up and please keep in touch.

  57. I had a knee surgery, could not get out and exercise for 16 weeks. I did a lot of sitting , very little walking. In that time I gained 20 pounds right through the middle. Now doctor says I have a fatty liver. Exercises are still not a good thing. Any suggestions? I sure would appreciate your advice.

    • Although exercise is a very important part of recovering from a fatty liver, it is often difficult because of the lower than usual energy levels when your liver is infiltrated with fat, as well as the extra weight making any joint aches and pain much worse. Making long term changes to your diet by doing your best not to eat processed food is certainly going to be a great place to start. Eating fresh food – either raw (salads) or steamed or baked (vegetables) with good quality protein (meat, fish, eggs etc.) and saturated fats like olive oil, avocado, coconut oil and butter will make you feel fuller for longer. And don’t worry about that old wives’ tale about eating fat will make you fat . . . it is only eating the wrong kinds of fat (trans fats) that will do that. Take a quality liver tonic like LivaTone Plus as well as NAC to support your liver. Avoid alcohol and sugar as much as possible or make the choice for the least amount of sugar if you need to have it at all (and no, do not use aspartame or chemical sweeteners as these place a huge burden on your already ailing liver). Drink 6-8 cups of water daily (or herbal teas). Best advice is to grab a copy of ‘Fatty Liver – you can reverse it’ and follow the detailed instructions in this great book.

  58. Is it safe to give Livatone to my 13yr old daughter who has had a diagnosis of auto immune liver, sclerosing cholangitis, crohns for the past 4-5 years? She is constantly tired and not sleeping very well.

    • Hi Dawn,

      Yes- totally safe, start her on 1 x twice daily for 1 month- then increase to 2 x twice daily ongoing.
      Crohns- that is auto immune, so she must be 100% Gluten Free- Gluten switches on auto immune diseases- Dr Cabot has a book titled “Gluten- is it making you sick or fat” I recommend you get yourself a copy- that will help you. 1 x tsp of Dr Cabot’s magnesium powder 15 mins before bed will help her to sleep and id recommend glutamine 1 x heaped teaspoon on an empty stomach twice daily to reduce the inflammation of her gastro intestinal system. She MUST be gluten free.

  59. hi Dr. im 54 i was told i have a fatty liver, high blood pressure, diabetes, in Nov. im 6’3″ an 295 lbs. yes very over wieght. it seems that i cant lose wieght what ever i do. can not breathe, cant walk up a set of stairs. just no air. i would like some input on what need to do about fatty liver thing. Thanks Doug

    • Id recommend you strictly follow the protocol in the book titled “Fatty liver- you can reverse it” be sure that you also go totally grain free in your diet. Liva tone plus and Magnesium will help you, lots of Omega 3 fats into your diet- and take a fish oil supplement as well. start the day with filtered lemon water- 2 glasses full and start exercising- literally just walking for 40 mins each morning to burn fat. Take Glucemic balance to assist in the reduction of blood sugar fluctuations that your are going to get when you stop eating grains and dairy- yes, grains AND dairy- they spike your insulin levels and you will never reduce blood sugars if you are still eating grains and dairy. In fact, now i think about it- please get a second book- titled “Diabetes type 2- you can reverse it” both simple paperback books- cheap and full of information that will ensure you are feeling better a lot sooner than later.

  60. Yes- thanks.

  61. 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

  62. 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

      Kylie McCarthy

  63. 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 Kyle, do you think a person with Type 2 can have Greek yogurt? I see Dr. Cabot says it’s okay for fatty liver, but is it ok for Type 2?

  64. Rebecca S Fajardo

    Your column and web site both vry educational and informative! I realy appreciate it learning from experienced and well rounded drs…should i say consultants and who have specialized in their field of studies..

    I am so interested with your herbal meds(herbal?) like Livatone plus and your book as well.

    • HI Rebecca,

      Yes- the Dr’s and consultants that work here are all well rounded and only to happy to help.
      Thank you for your comments. If you would like further information or perhaps purchase any of the books you like, you are able to do so directly from the Liver Doctor Web site. Dr Cabot has over 26 books assisting people like yourself to heal themselves and hopefully live a long and active life. All the best in health Rebecca.

  65. I have just found out I have severe fatty liver,I had a lung transplant seven years ago,and since then I developed type 2 diabetes, and now i have type 1 diabetes,I take Prograf ,imuran,prednisone to prevent rejection,insulin total 50 units per day,i am overweight,by 20 pounds and haste a large belly,do you have any suggestions of how i can try to reverse my fatty liver condition,or will I be fighting a losing battle,John

    • 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.

  66. 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

    * Red itchy eyes
    * Weight excess in the abdominal area
    * Join paint
    * tiredness

    I hope you can help me, I want to buy your product can you ship me in our country.


    • 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.

  71. 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

  72. 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

  73. 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.

    • Hi Kim, detox symptoms are varied for each person, general symptoms are headaches, perhaps itchy skin. Dr Cabots book titled “Ultimate Detox” explains that in full. Yes, papaya and pineapple both contain very effective digestive enzymes. You could eat a piece before a meal.

  74. 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. Id recommend Raw Vegetable juices- no grains or sugar and also assist your insulin resistance with 2 Glycemic Balance at every meal.
      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.

      All the best- and thank you for your email.

    • HI Veronica, Nothing sorry. No clinical trials have been held on pregnant women, best thing you can do is eat a gluten / grain free organic diet full on Omega 3 fats, B vitamins.

  82. I’m sorry. That autocorrected. I meant, I saw that you mentioned*

  83. I saw that you me ruined no white flour and avoid pastas and breads. What about whole grain foods and whole grain pastas, breads, etc?

    • 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.
      All the best in health

  84. 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 🙂


    • HI Karen, Thank you for your email. If you are talking about what fruits to have in your juice- then i suggest just the citrus for you. NAC 600mg capsules- 1 three times daily.

    • 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
      All the best in health

  92. 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?


  93. hello doctor,
    my husband is 39 years old and has been diagonised for mild fatty liver.he takes alcohol for atleast 4 times a week. smokes at times.he is normal in weight. 68 kgs. he does eat lot of fuits, vegetables, salads etc… but he’s been taking medicines for spondylytis for past 15 years. and his cholestral level is also high in the report, pls suggest me some home remedies and treatments.

    • HI Gayathri,
      Liva tone Plus 2 x twice daily will increase his liver function, enabling fast elimination of toxins fats from the liver. My book Fatty Liver You Can Revere It explains this well and give you the dietary protocol to follow to reverse a fatty liver. Given your husband drinks 4 times a week he will need the assistance in liver cell function. Ankylosing Spondylitis is often triggered by gluten- id be recommending a 100% gluten free diet.
      That will help him a lot Gayathri.

  94. 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.

  95. 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.

          • 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?

      • Sursiiprng to think of something like that

  96. 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

  97. Hello docter my fater has suffer from fatty liver llast 4 year but some time it feel well but not fully well liver function

    • Hello Suraj,

      Liva Tone plus 2 x twice daily will assist in reversing your fatty liver.
      There is a book titled “Fatty Liver- You Can Reverse It” that book will give you the correct dietary and supplemental protocol you need to follow in the hope of reversing your fatty liver. There is plenty of information on fatty liver here on the http://www.liverdoctor.com web site- you can purchase the Fatty Liver book from that web site also.

  98. what happened to my post

  99. 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.

  100. 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?

  101. 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 ?

  102. 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

  103. 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.

  104. 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

  105. 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
      jael anderson

  106. Hi doctors within the last 4yrs I have gain a lot of weight I am a vegan, my weight. Was 135 now I am 218 and ever week I seems to get heavier I am 5-8 in hight, I have developed asthma this year, I also suffer with migraine, I have stop walking due to my feet being swollen I am so tire alsi I have gotten lota on almost my entire body.two yrs ago I did a blood text that show my liver enzymes was a little high the blood glucose was high after taken two hours after eating, can you help me.jael Anderson

    • 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.

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

  108. 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.

  109. 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.

  110. 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 !

  111. 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.

  112. 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

  113. 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

  114. 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

  115. 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

  116. A Fascinating,very good topic
