    Thanks Vanessa for an informative post, I have a fatty liver & have found doctors here to be not very helpful on the subject. I have recently started following a paleo lifestyle & it’s good to know that I’m on the right track with it.

    My grandmother died of this disease back in 1959 when I was 2. I was the last person she talked to before she passed. She said, “you be a good little miss for your mommy and daddy.” Back then it wasnt called Fatty Liver, it was called Cirohssis of the liver but was non alcohlic. Before Fatty Liver was termed, Id have to explain she never drank in her life. I would get looks like… are you sure, maybe she did and no one knew but that was not the case.

    My husband was diagnosed with fatty liver about two years ago. He switched to olive and coconut oil years ago and has been on the caveman diet also even before being diagnosed. His blood tests are pretty close to normal in all areas which is great. So I would highly recommend them if you want to make a difference for yourself.

      Ask your doctor to do a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel- You will see- two results that are for your liver: AST-SGOT and ALT-SGPT. Also have your cholesterol checked!

      Why test for it? You already know how you feel. Detoxification of your body can help what ails you. Eating clean, whole foods will heal your fatty liver. I have a ton of info if you’re interested. The Internet can be so I overwhelming..
