Probably not: There are new medications on the horizon for hepatitis c. If in addition you have common non-alcoholic fatty liver (and this isn't just the fat that tends to accumulate in hepatitis c), how about getting back into physical fitness like when you were a teen? You have nothing to lose and much to gain.
