In brief: Dietary modification

Several things can contribute to fatty infiltration of the liver including 1) excess weight over a long period of time, 2) pregnancy, 3) diet 4) medical conditions like diabetes, and 5) medications including chemotherapy.
Depending on the contributing factors, some of the problem may be treated effectively with weight loss, tight glucose control, and/or dietary modification.
