Medically Reviewed by Checkmark Medically Reviewed By: Sheela Krishnaswamy

Maybe. You don’t need special treatment if you have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) without any other medical problems. Making some lifestyle changes can control or reverse the fat buildup in your liver. These may include weight loss, lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, controlling blood sugar levels, avoiding alcohol, etc. Losing 10% of your current weight can decrease the amount of fat in the liver and reduce inflammation. 

According to a study, diet has a very important role in the cases of NAFLD. Too much fast food, diet-rich fats, etc. can increase the risk of obesity and NAFLD. Whereas, if you actively include fibre-rich food in your diet, it can decrease the risk of NAFLD.

A diet plan containing fruits and vegetables and high-fibre plants like legumes and whole grains may help to treat fatty liver. Significant reduction of intake of foods and beverages that are high in added sugar, salt, refined carbohydrates, saturated fat, and also avoiding alcohol play a vital role.
