what is liver coma?

A very bad event

Coma
When a patient has liver failure for any reason (cirrhosis?), the normal detoxification mechanisms are defective and a patient develops a metabolic encephalopathy. If severe, coma ensues, and this can be definitely life threatening. Brain function is secondarily disrupted, perhaps profoundly. Intensive care treatment is mandatory.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

What is a fatty liver?

Liver has more fat

Bile
A person with mild fatty liver likely has gotten extra fat in most other places in the body, and probably is eating more sugar and plain carbs than he should be. Exercise, weight loss, and a low sugar and low carbs diet will help. He should work with his primary care doctor to see if he needs medication or further testing, as there can be other causes of fatty liver, plus cholesterol problems.

My liver size is 14.4?

That's normal

Liver
Up to 15 cm on the right is perfectly fine, a taller person's liver may be several cm taller itself, and some folks have an odd-shaped liver with a much bigger span but that works fine.
