It's possible: I'm not sure what you mean by a.H. (alcoholic hepatitis?). If the fatty liver disease is due to alcohol, and cirrhosis has not already developed, then discontinuation of alcohol will prevent further injury. If cirrhosis is already present, abstinence will decrease disease progression.
