Fish Oil and Fatty Liver

I take three capsules per week of Enteric Coated Fish Oil Concentrate, which equates to 850mg "Concentrated" Fish Oil and 440mg Omega-3 Fatty Acids per capsules.

I was diagnosed with fatty liver after my last biopsy about a year ago. Doctor didn't seem to think this was alarming, but I wonder if anyone has any data correlating the two (fish oil & fatty liver)

Thanks,

Magnum

I read your post About the the fish oil Omega 3  it promotes good vascular and heart health and most of all its good for  inflamation (inflammation), are you over weight
for your height? do you drink? A fatty liver is called Steatohe accumulation
Of fat within your liver usuallu causes no liver damage And if you dont drink
And your not obease then there is a potentially more serious type is non
Alcoholic Steatohepatitis its Called ( NASH) its associated with liver damaging inflamation (inflammation) and sometime the formation of fibrous tissue it could even progress to cirrhosis which can produce progressive, Irreversible liver scarring  or to
Liver Cancer. Hay do you have Hep. C ?? if you dont have hep c you better
Start to respect your liver. as far as the fish oil hurting your fatty liver, there
is no chance that will ever happend the fish oil are the good fatty acids
