See details: A fatty liver generally has no significant clinical implications. If you exercise, control calories and lose weight, the fatty deposits in the liver will be reduced as well.

How long does it take to cleanse the liver ?

No clear answer: It is unclear what you mean by "cleansing the liver" - the liver receives blood from the intestines and from the heart and is responsible for many functions, including excreting toxins. In some cases, the liver may be affected by long-term exposure to excess calories or toxins. If the damage is minimal, it can be reversed within a few weeks, in severe cases damage may not be reversible.
