There is a build up of fats in patients suffering from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.This is a very common and in many cases is linked to being obese or overweight. Most people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease do not develop serious liver problems. In some people the build-up of fat in the liver can lead to inflammation of liver resulting in hepatitis and very few may develop serious liver problems like cirrhosis.However, all people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke. 
Since you seem to be obese,the main treatment advised for you  is a gradual weight loss and regular exercise. This not only helps with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease but will help reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular problems. 
Since other causes for this condition like  high cholesterol,high triglycerides and diabetes are absent in you,your obesity is the culprit for your fatty liver.
There is no specific medicine to treat this except regular exercises and weight loss.
