Milk thistle for fatty liver?
I have Hep C & my mom has fatty liver (I guess I come from a liver dysfunctional family).  I've heard about milk thistle being used to treat liver inflammation...would it also help to treat fatty liver?  I'm not taking it myself (yet); maybe we can go halfsies on it & split the vitamins, or would it be cash in the trash (for her)?  Also, how long does one normally take milk thistle?

the only treatment for fatty liver is to lose any excess weight, do not drink alcohol and eat a super nutritious diet free of processing and refining, no saturated or trans fats, no sugars, avoid meat with fats (sausage, salami,burgers,etc) and maintain regular exercise. Fatty liver if allowed to increase can lead to fibrosis which leads to cirrhosis so diet and exercise changes are very important in those with fatty liver, you can reduce it and possibly even eliminate it with lifestyle changes. There is no other treatment for it.


Milk thistle is touted to reduce inflammation in your liver but there isn't info.to "prove" that at this point.
