In brief: Distinguish diseases

Distinguish fatty liver (steatosis) from fatty liver with abnormal liver tests (steatohepatitis).
Best to start with a weight loss diet based on calorie and fat restriction, avoid alcohol, control diabetes & cholesterol (if present). Your doctor will likely want to monitor your labwork, image the liver, & rule out other diseases that can mimick the pattern of liver tests seen with fatty changes.
