How do I treat a fatty liver?

I consider myself healthy. I am self-employed and was just rejected for health insurance because of high cholesterol and a "potentially fatty liver". What can I do with over the counter supplements to aid my liver? Will losing weight also help lose the fatty liver? I've gained 50 pounds since hitting menopause at age 44. I am now 54.

Any other suggestions on health insurance? For less than $600/month?
