Fatty Liver Disease

How do medications treat fatty liver disease?

A Answers (1)

  • Fatty liver disease (FLD) may not need much treatment at all if diagnosed in its early stage. In these cases, the root cause of the disease should be examined first, and the primary treatment will probably be attempting to eliminate the underlying cause. This may be done through abstinence from alcohol. If your FLD has worsened and developed into the later stages of alcoholic liver disease, however, then you may be given vitamin B supplements, corticosteroids, or antioxidants to try to repair the damage to your liver.
