Thank you for writing DLife and asking important questions.
Fatty liver disease can be caused by excess alcohol, excess weight, or insulin resistance. If any of the above are potential causes for your fatty liver condition you may benefit from trying to get to the root cause, in addition to following the prescribed medical regimen.
An excellent way to reduce insulin resistance is to engage in daily physical activity including both aerobic (walking, treadmill) and strength training (weights, resistance bands). Speak with your health team to see what level of activity is safe for you.
Due to the complexity of the health challenges you are describing, it would be best for any recommendations to come from a registered dietitian nutritionist who has access to your medical record. You may be able to continue taking the fish oils (omega-3’s), but this and other recommendations require a review of your lab work. This will allow for management suggestions that are very specific to you. With on-going lab work, these suggestions can be modified over time to be current and precise in providing exactly what you need.
