It is what it is.: If you have a diagnosis of fatty liver then that explains your lab values. They are very minimally elevated. I suppose your doctor has told you that a certain percentage of people with this disease progress to severe liver disease, but most people with fatty liver die from heart disease just like the rest of us.
