Hello. My brother recently had an CT scan and they discovered a severe fatty liver. We are very concerned about his condition and really don't know what to do. His ALT and AST are little elevated, and his cholesterol was little elevated. He is not a diabetic, he is not overweight he is totally normal in weight, he doesnt take meds except some tylenol when he gets cold,he doesn't drink or smoke, he doesnt eat fatty food..what he eats most are fruits vegetables, rice, potatoes and pasta..and he is only 24. . I researched online more information but I cant find about the specific form of severe fatty liver. Is it very dangerous? Does severe mean that he has an inflamation (inflammation) or chirhosis? what is the difference between mild moderate and severe and the complications of severe?What can he do to treat or reverse his severe form of fatty liver? I dont think that he should lose weight because he is perfect weight for his height and age. Please help us. Thank you!
