In brief: See below: Fatty liv

A fatty liver is a common condition.
It implies excess of fat in your liver which can be harmful. It is commonly caused by over weight and can get better if you eat less and lose some weight. Alcohol can also contribute to its development. You need a medical check up/ and a doc to advise you how to control it and how to monitor it in future. It can be a serious problem if not monitored and treated.
