Most likely but:: Most likely thyroid hormone will help lower cholesterol and triglycerides, but you may also benefit from liothyronine. It may take a couple months to see changes in blood tests. For fatty liver also do a low-carb diet. See https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/need-know-thyroid-disease/ and https://tinyurl.com/y8rars9k and https://draxe.com/health/fatty-liver-disease/

Agree with Dr. B: It is imperative that you lose weight to address fatty liver. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!

Fatty liver : Fatty liver often is a result of high-calorie diets, excess alcohol use, obesity, medications, poor sugar control. I agree with losing weight as an essential treatment in most cases. Abnormal thyroid levels can contribute to fatty liver. There are other conditions to consider which are less common, hepatitis (viral and autoimmune), and inherited metabolic problems
