A doctor has provided 1 answer

Fatty liver: Excess fat in your liver or fatty liver, alcoholic or nonalcoholic, is described. Fortunately no scarring is present. Hopefully no inflammation, as evidenced by symptoms and elevated liver enzymes, is present. You can reverse the changes by abstaining from alcohol, reducing weight if you're overweight, and following a low fat, low carbohydrate diet. A gastroenterologist can advise and follow you.
