Hi and welcome to HCM. Thankyou for your querry.
This is only mild hepatomegaly and first stage of fatty liver so u you dont have to be very concerned. it is still completely reversible. In the beginning it is treated by changing lifestyle and dietary habbits and this is usually enough. SOmetimes certain medicines can be prescribed. Of course avoiding alcohol ,fats and toxic drugs is obligatory. Loose motion can be caused by fatty liver,this shouldnt worry you. Just do often lft check ups and see is there improvement.
WOish you good health.
