Hi, welcome to HCM,
Firstly, fatty liver is the most common incidental finding during Ultrasound scan. It is not a dangerous condition rather it indicates you to avoid rich diet and alcohol.
It will not reduce by any drugs. Only life style modification is the measure which can stop it disease progression.
Now, ESR - it is a not so much reliable indicator of any specific disease. Because many condition gives falsely elevated result. So it is not a problem when clinically there is no diease condition.
