Fatty liver: Fatty liver which may be alcoholic or nonalcoholic related is to be taken seriously. I recommend that a hepatologist or gastroenterologist evaluate,advise, treat you and arrange for proper follow-up exams. Dietary measures, advice about alcohol intake and evaluation of your serum lipids will also be carried out.

Yes: I trust you are alcohol-free and hemochromatosis and Wilson's are ruled out. You likely have the genes for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis..
