May have: Fatty liver also called steatosis. This can lead to liver damage/ cirrhosis. Also associated with metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Time to see a doctor and improve your health. Eat correctly, exercise, no smoking, and take your prescribed meds. Fatty liver can be reversed! please get started.
