My gastroenterologist has said they they should be coming out with some eventually but as of now there are none. Some say that vitamins such as milk thistle and omega 3 helps .

@Sunflower-Rain I have been using milk thistle. Thank you Sunflower - Rain.
Did your gastroenterologist say what the medication that they should be coming out with is called and when it is supposed to be released?

My dr fole me to take a lot of vitamin e. I take 6, 400 iu a day. It seems to help. He also said to lose weight. No fries etc.

No she just said they were still in the testing stages and hopefully it would come out soon. She seemed pretty hopeful. But she also said weight loss as well I am supposed to loose 20lbs by Oct... it is frustratingly hard though.

Yes, I was also told no medicine at this time. Biggest way to help is to lose weight and take Omega 3 and I have also just started taking something called Liver Health Pills made by Modere.

Hi, does anyone have any updates on this question? I found an interesting article about why NASH isn't a priority for pharmaceutical companies: https://www.biorasi.com/blog/why-arent-there-any-fda-approved-drugs-to-treat-nash/
Maybe this is why were left to suffer?

By time they found my hubby it was to late to undo what had been done but yes if you cut back on fat foods lose weight . Please listen to your doc my hubby was told they can help delay but cant stop him from going into liver failure bo transplant for him due to cancer related problems.

@Dedeswite This is good advice. Listen to your doctor, reduce your fat intake and sugar (Reduce refined sugar to zero in my opinion) and do light exercise if possible. It can really reduce the symptoms.
I'm sorry to hear about your husband. How is doing now?
