Do not take anything not prescribed by or cleared by your doctor. With advanced liver disease it is very important not to take anything your doctor does not know about and approve. Especially avoid NSAID pain medicines like Aleve.
Apparently folic acid does have some benefits for those with fatty liver disease but it does not treat edema. To treat edema you need to limit salt intake and if that doesn’t help you need to take a diuretic medicine. Salt is sodium and is hidden in many foods so read food labels and try to limit your sodium intake to less than 2,00 mg daily or less.

More information about folate regarding cancer.
“ Folate that is naturally present in food may decrease the risk of several forms of cancer. But folate supplements might have different effects on cancer risk depending on how much the person takes and when. People who take recommended amounts of folic acid before cancer develops might decrease cancer risk, but taking high doses after cancer (especially colorectal cancer) begins might speed up its progression. For this reason, people should be cautious about taking high doses of folic acid supplements (more than the upper limit of 1,000 mcg), especially if they have a history of colorectal adenomas (which sometimes turn into cancer). More research is needed to understand the roles of dietary folate and folic acid supplements in cancer risk.”
