Need more info: Diffuse fatty infiltration can have many causes, common ones being fatty liver due to alcohol and fatty liver associated with obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes. It would require more information to settle the issue. However, if you are even slightly overweight, reduce you weight through diet and exercise, not easy, but essential.
