Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually a fatty liver can be due to various causes including due to alcohol intake, due to a marked increase in the cholesterol levels in the body or due to medications. But a fatty liver can be managed before it progresses to cause permanent or irreversible damage to the liver. Usually this would take some time to progress to chronic liver disease, the mean time is between 1-3 years depending on the underlying cause and whether treatment is sought or not.

But a diffusely echogenic fatty liver is serious enough to warrant a immediate change in the lifestyle as well further tests to prevent it from progressing further. This would include complete abstinence from alcohol, cutting back on fried and fatty foods, using medications like atorvastatin or rosuvastatin to reduce the deposition of fat in the liver.

BUT it is NOT serious enough that you would think that the liver cannot recover, IT CAN COMPLETELY recover provided you undertake the right interventions.

Do you have any more questions?
