How is an enlarged liver treated?

Treatment for an enlarged liver depends on what is causing it. Lifestyle changes can help when the liver enlargement is a result of fat accumulation in the liver or consuming alcohol. Lifestyle changes include:

  • Losing weight
  • Cutting back or eliminating alcohol
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Increasing exercise and physical activity

Treatment for other causes of liver enlargement depends on the underlying disease that caused it.
