Brief Answer:
Silymarin, diet restriction of fats

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I consider you to be in the initial stages of the fatty liver. This is good that you are concious about it.

Do take Silymarin supplements which would improve the liver functioning which intern will remove the fat from the liver.

Also you may have to cut on fats in the diet even though the cholesterol is in the range.

Do not go for any other medication except Liv 52 and Silymarin as most of the drugs are metabolised in the liver giving it extra burden and aggravating fatty liver.
