Liver: Yes you can. steatohepatitis, simple put fat deposits in your liver can be excerated by poor fatty diet, or high consumption of alcohol. I had a patient that became depressed after his divorce. resorted to alcohol, binging, and drinking a pint of vodka on a daily. he induced liver changes very quickly.

Fatty liver risks: Fatty liver is incredibly common, predominantly due to: high alcohol intake, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity. The more of these risks you have, the greater the chance of fatty liver. Addressing these risks is an important step to correcting fatty liver. Distinguish hepatosteatosis (fatty liver) from steatohepatitis (fatty liver with abnormal liver tests that risks cirrhosis & liver cancer).
