Parenchyma: The key elements of an organ essential to its functioning, as distinct from the capsule that encompasses it and other supporting structures. The parenchyma is thus opposed to the connective tissue framework, or stroma, of an organ. The parenchyma of the testis consists of what are called the seminiferous tubules.

The Greek word "parenchyma" means "that which is poured in." It reflects the ancient (and erroneous) idea that the inner substance of solid organs like the liver, spleen and kidneys was formed by blood that was poured into it.

What does Hepatic Parenchymal Disease Secondary to Diffuse Fatty Liver mean?
It is Liver Disease caused by Steatosis (Fatty Liver).

Can it be cure?
Yes
How?
Stop drinking Alcohol and Diet and exercise. But you probably didn’t want to hear that.

   Also cut out sugars and not too many carbs. Sugar is a big cause of Fatty liver. By the way alcohol is turned into sugar by the body.

You may want to repost a new question in order to get Results. This is an older thread from 2008.  If you go to the top of this page there is a box saying ask a question.  You may want to put it in the Cirrhosis of the Liver forum.
Good Luck
