I understand your worry.
Hepatocellular damage is literally damage to your liver cells. There are many reasons for liver damage including medications,fat rich diet and drinking alcohol.
However such mild liver damage can be reversible if underlying cause is ruled out and treated properly.
You should stop alcohol intake if you drink.
Also discuss it with your doctor if it's medication induced.
You should eat fat free diet in the meantime.
If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.
