Thanks for posting your query

Fatty liver in terms of 5-10% of the weight of the liver can cause problems

It is usually associated either with alcohol and/or obesity - Diabetes and other causes and labelled as Alcoholic Liver disease or Non Alcoholic liver disease

The treatment depends on the cause of fatty liver

Your appears to be Non Alcoholic Liver disease, you should consult a good gastroentrologist in your area for further management

In the mean time :

In case you are obese or diabetic control weight and diabetes

Avoid fried and fermented meals
Add a good probiotic to your list of medications

Avoid medicines which can cause more damage to liver

Hope this helps
