My father have a thick fat layer deposited in his liver actually ..i want some general suggestion ? this may harm his kidneys too??

I had dengue and small liver infection.I am finding a thick purple band after lunula (whick is usually thin).Is there any risk.

Dengue: You cannot make a diagnosis or appreciate one's risk of any disease by the way his/her lunula looks. The thickness of the purple band doesn't make any difference and i don't see how dengue comes into play with the rest either. ...Read more
