It's interesting that a very low carb diet improved the liver to the point of no longer needing a transplant. 

 

My fatty liver is gone after losing weight via LCHF.  I was eating about 70g carbs per day back then.  It took about 8 months to get rid of the fatty liver, I had lost about 55 lbs. by then.  Mine was caused by diet resulting in obesity.  I didn't have any damage to the liver, but it was encased in fat.  HFCS is notorious for causing fatty liver per my gastro, in my case it was Pepsi.

My liver panels are normal the last 6 years after near cirrhotic levels (doctor thought I was a heavy drinker despite being a teetotaller) I believe is due to eating LC and VLC and losing half a person in body fat.
