In brief: Weight loss

There is no well established treatment for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (nafld).
Weight loss has consistently shown the most benefit. Good control of concomittent diseases such as diabetes and hyperlipidemia may be of benefit. Vitamin e suppliments have shown some benefit. Insulin sensitizers such as pioglitazone may have some benefit in diabetics with nafld.
