Fatty liver: I presume the diagnosis was made by your doctor. If he/she has not fully explained this to you it would be wise to make another visit so you have a better understanding. If you have not seen a liver specialist (gastroenterologist) about this you must have your doctor refer you.

A relative of mine was diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver disease, can this be reversed?

Yes it is possible: This condition is a metabolic disorder often associated with diabetes and overweight conditions. If this person can reduce weight by doing daily exercise and cutting on daily intake of food/ calories, liver may recover but the weight has to go down to normal and daily exercise is a must and should be continued for the long term.

Can be really fast: A few days of sobriety can clear up the liver if it's due to a wild alcohol party holiday. When it's due to lack of exercise, a few weeks can effect a striking improvement. Finding fatty liver is often a life-saving wake-up call. Be proactive. Best wishes.
