No standard treatment for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease exists.
Instead, doctors typically work to treat the risk factors that contribute to your liver disease. For instance, if you're obese, your doctor will help you to lose weigh through diet, exercise.
Possible drug treatment may include Insulin-sensitizing agents, such as the two new thiazolidinediones, pioglitazone (Actos) and rosiglitazone (Avandia), and metformin (Glucophage) may be of use and medications that lower lipids such as the statin drugs. Drugs such as Orlistat that blocks some of the fat that you eat, keeping it from being absorbed by your body may also be useful.
