Thanks for posting your query.
Udizia contains urso deoxy cholic acid. This medication is prescribed by doctors for many conditions especially cholestasis. In your case, it has been prescribed for fatty liver.
You have not mentioned whether you consume alcohol.
Based on your liver function test report, I presume you do not consume alcohol.
Your fatty liver is probably due to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Your cholesterol level is normal. Other factors should be looked in to which includes obesity, diabetes.
If you are obese, you need to reduce weight.
If you are a diabetic, then you need to take medications to keep blood glucose under control.
This will help to resolve fatty liver.
I hope that answers your question.
