The liver is the largest organ of our body, which plays a role in the physiological process in the body and is most exposed to toxins. The liver's functions are essential for life since it is involved in macronutrient metabolism. Fatty diets, excessive alcohol consumption, sedentary lifestyles, ready-made foods and beverages, and fructose metabolism in the liver are all factors that contribute to liver fat. In the advanced stage of fatty liver, changes in liver cells, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma, which rank first in the world in terms of mortality, are seen. Therefore, current treatments and future approaches to fatty liver research are of tremendous interest. The results of investigations looking into the causes and current treatments for alcoholic liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease were compiled in this review.
