Hello, relton.alexander,
Fatty liver is caused by various factors. Number one in western hemisphere
is alcohol excess. The one we are seeing more commonly is a condition
called "Metabolic Syndrome". This is associated with overweight. Type-2
diabetes or insulin resistance,high lipids and fatty liver of variuos grades.
Codliver oil supplement is actually good for the body. It supplies Omega-3
fatty acids which are anti-oxidants and prevent cancer and boost your
immune system.
I recommend that you get a complete metabolic panel, lipid levels.
thyroid function tests and a ultrasound examination of the liver if you
have not had that.
Losing weight is important along with regular excercise.
Cut back on fatty foods , increase proteins in your diet.
Take Vit-E supplement 800i.u. daily along with Vit-C 1000mg. daily.
I am very glad that you are not a drinker or a smoker.
I wish you well.

Welcome to HCM,
Many times fatty liver is asymptomatic and detected in routine screening tests,It is commonly associated with Alcohol,Diabetes,Obesity,and Dyslipidemia but there are many other causes so it is good that you do not take alcohol,
If you are obese reduce your weight and keep your BP in desirable range reduce salt intake.
Cod liver cap should not cause it but do not unnecessarily take those.
Kindly visit a Physician and examination may give clue to cause or search the cause with investigations.
Many drugs can cause it so try to find out cause because treatment depends on it.
You may have to check for viral hepatitis,mushroom poisoning,phosphorus and lot more causes.
Take care.
Good Luck
