Fatty Liver Disease (cont.)

Follow-up

Patients with fatty liver disease should be seen routinely in follow-up visits to their health care practitioner in order to monitor their liver function and progression to more serious liver abnormalities. Since weight loss, diet, and physical activity are the most important tools in minimizing the risk of fatty liver disease, and are the most effective treatments, consultations with a dietician and a physical trainer may be appropriate.
