The only thing I recall about coconut oil was back in the 90's. This was when movie popcorn was crucified for being popped highly saturated coconut oil.  

The Center for Science in the Public Interest put out a study claiming that a large movie-theater popcorn, hold the butter, delivered as much saturated fat as six Big Macs.

Many health organizations advise against the consumption of high amounts of coconut oil due to its high levels of saturated fat. Coconut oil has up to 10 times as much saturated fat as other non hydrogenated oils. Safflower, corn, sunflower, peanut or canola (rapeseed).
Coconut oil contains a large proportion of lauric acid—a saturated fat that raises blood cholesterol levels by increasing the amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.

If one has fatty liver disease it would not be advisable to indulge in. As high cholesterol and obesity increase the risk and the progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease is the fastest growing cause of cirrhosis and the need for liver transplants.

Treat and cure your hepatitis C and your liver will be fine.
