Our expert says:
Fatty deterioration of the liver can be caused by a variety of factors, not just alcohol abuse, such as exposure to harmful chemicals, virus infections and diseases (e.g. hepatitis). I think you should go back to the dr and ask him/her what could have caused this condition. He needs to eat a diet that is low in fat and high in protective nutrients. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Food as medicine' and read the articles on liver disease. It may also be a good idea to consult a clinical dietitian (check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area) to help you work out at diet that protects the liver.
