Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That means you have fatty liver.

Fat has gone inside the normal liver tissue.

Fatty liver can be caused by obesity, diabetes, alcohol, high cholesterol commonly.

High fiber diet, exercise, weight loss, alcohol avoidance will help with the recovery.

Not a serious condition.
