Altered mentation: Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a chronic condition leading to confusion when toxins build up in the body due to cirrhosis of the liver. Of these toxins, ammonia seems to play a major role. Usually having 2-3 bowel movements a day with help of medications (decreases ammonia) and can control symptoms of HE. See a liver doctor to discuss other causes resulting in HE.

Depends: Fatty liver is usually diagnosed with an ultrasound showing fat deposits in the liver. Usually liver enzymes are elevated (ALT and AST). Most people with fatty liver are overweight, so weight loss is the curative treatment. Diet and exercise is crucial in achieving substantial weight loss. Avoid supplements that causes weight loss . Also certain medications and alcohol can result in fatty liver.
