Hi Sivakumar,

Thanks for posting your query.

Yes, Fatty liver and bloated sensation is related with each other. Fatty liver by itself causes bloated sensation and abdominal distention.

The CT scan has showed fatty liver. Please proceed further to get your liver function test or LFT done along with fasting lipid profile.

If you do consume alcohol, please abstain from it completely.

Based on your LFT and lipid profile, management can be planned accordingly. Avoid high fat content food. Do moderate physical activity daily.

I hope this information helps you and you get well soon.
