In brief: 2 different diseases

Fatty liver is predominantly due to: high alcohol intake, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity.
The more of these risks you have, the greater the chance of fatty liver. Addressing these risks is an important step to correcting fatty liver. Distinguish hepatosteatosis (fatty liver) from steatohepatitis (fatty liver with abnormal liver tests that risks cirrhosis & liver cancer. Hep C is an infection.
