If your husband's fatty liver completely resolves he can probably drink moderately. It's possible, however, that, if your husband tends to be a heavy drinker, too much damage may have been done to the liver and he must find a way to abstain to prevent further damage. If not, he will inevitably damage it beyond repair and ultimately shorten his life.
If his fatty liver is due more to obesity and consumption of sweeteners, like high fructose corn syrup, which is in just about every processed food, then changing his diet and lifestyle will help him hit the reset button--again, depending on how much damage has been done to the liver and whether he can drink moderately.
You might also consider getting him tested for storage iron. Iron overload is one possible cause of fatty liver disease. If he takes a multivitamin, make sure it doesn't have iron.
I understand that you would prefer that he quit drinking, but in case he doesn't, here are some nutrients and herbs that can help: multivitamin without iron, milk thistle, dandelion, B-complex, B12 sublingual, magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, fish oil, lecithin.
I hope this helps some!
