No.


Fatty liver is a condition that is not painful. However, pain under your right ribs could indicate another problem. Gallbladder disease comes to mind first. Certain lung conditions may also cause pain in that area. Inflammation of the stomach may also cause discomfort under the right ribs. If the pain continues or is severe, I urge you to seek medical attention right away. Good luck!

Lots of liver diseases can have itching (pruritus) associated. A number of nonliver diseases also. Don't assume due to fatty liver. See MD

See your physician


"Fatty liver disease" is usually benign but can be associated with other conditions that can place patients at risk for long term liver disease, some of which can be clinically silent. Your physician can evaluate your symptoms within the context of specific laboratory values and your physical examination to help determine your risk profile and determine the cause of your symptoms.

Each patient reacts differently to each product and a person might have an underlying medical condition that might prevent them from taking any one specific product.
