fat deposits on liver. will they heal? and if so is it true the liver repairs itself within 30 days with a healthier diet?
it was a routine phone call. My doctor says i have some fat deposits on my liver. he's going to repeat a blood test in a few months. he just told me to cut out the animal fats plus i eat fruit too is it anything to really worry about at the mo judging by what he said?

Cut out the REFINED fats, not animal fats. Animal fats are good for us and there is absolutely zero scientific evidence or medical reports or studies which prove animal fats are dangerous. Refined fats are harmful, such as seed oils, Crisco oil, Wesson Oil, canola oil, etc.
Olive oil and avocado oils are fine, unless they contain other ingredients. Unrefined coconut oil is good for us too.
Doctors these days are definitely not keeping up with their continuing education.

Fatty liver disease *can* improve with dietary changes and weight loss if necessary, but it doesn't necessarily improve. It is not true that the liver self-repairs in a month if you eat right. Those fatty deposits may become smaller, and your liver enzyme levels return to normal, but fatty infiltration does not disappear.
For your liver's health, you need to get serious about a healthy diet, especially how much saturated fat you consume.
