welcome to HCM
Some people with excess fat in the liver simply have what's called a fatty liver
Although this is not normal, it is not serious if it doesn't lead to inflammation
Two types of fatty liver
1) alcoholic
2).non alcoholic
Cause include-- high cholesterol or triglycerides diabetes ,Medications ,Viral hepatitis, Autoimmune liver disease, Rapid weight loss ,Malnutrition
Overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine may be associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Fatty liver disease is often silent, producing no symptoms, especially in the beginning. If the disease advances -- which is usually over a period of years, or even decades -- it can cause v problems such as: Fatigue ,Weight loss or loss of appetite ,Weakness, Confusion, impaired judgment, etc
As you are overweight, do what you can to gradually lose weight -- no more than 1 or 2 pounds a week
Eat a balanced and healthy diet and increase your physical activity.
Avoiding unnecessary medications can also help slow or reverse the disease
take care

Thank you for the query.

Fatty liver can be caused by regular alcohol intake or due to obesity. So generally everything what helps with obesity, helps with fatty liver. You should check you cholesterol level and if increased, statins should be prescribed by your doctor. You should also avoid fatty foods, spicy foods, alcohol, medicines affecting liver.
As you are a very young person and has gallstones, there is a huge risk that sooner or later you will get symptoms from this stones. Moreover, it always brings risk of pancreatitis (especially if stones are small). That is why I suggest you also to get scheduled for cholecytectomy.

Hope this will help.
