If the liver can regenerate, does this mean I can get better on my own if I have liver disease?

In brief: Depends on cause

If the disease process is ongoing such as hepatitis, your liver may not be able to keep up.
It is best to see a hepatologist to manage and supervise your recovery and treatment.

In brief: It depends

If the cause of your liver disease is cured before cirrhosis occurs there is potential for return of normal liver function.
Once cirrhosis occurs it is not reversible.
