Fatty liver disease (FLD) does not have a single cure, but can be managed and often resolved through an appropriate treatment program. If FLD is the only problem (meaning that your condition has not developed into the latter stages of alcoholic liver disease), then simply abstaining from alcohol may be your cure. Additionally, managing your weight or participating in a weight loss program and beginning to eat a diet of nutritious foods can also help to reverse the effects of fatty liver disease. For people whose condition has progressed into the latter stages of alcoholic liver disease, liver damage may be more permanent, and other measures, up to and including liver transplant, may be necessary in order to treat the condition.
