How can fatty liver disease be prevented?

- Eat a balanced diet. The Mediterranean diet, which is high in vegetables, fruits and good fats, may help lower bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- Exercise regularly.
- Limit your alcohol consumption, or do not drink.
- Take medications as prescribed. Your doctor may prescribe statins to lower triglyceride levels or anti-diabetic drugs if you are diabetic or insulin-resistant.
