Hi, fatty liver is a reversible condition which can be resolved by healthy diet, exercise, weight loss, blood sugar control, cholesterol management. It doesnot cause permanent damage as liver repairs itself by rebuilding new cells. it is quite common in age group of 50-60.continue medications & other life style changes..
