Hello,
You must consult a Hepatologist so that the appropriate treatment will be prescribed. Concerning marriage, there is a very small possibility of sexual transmission to your wife. It is important that you avoid sharing razors, toothbrushes and nail clippers.

Hi Javed,
Welcome to HCM.
You can get married.
You should consult a Gastroenterologist regularly as advised by him, for the best management of your condition. Various tests may need to be done including ultrasound scan and Gastroscopy.
Fat free diet is advisable as far as possible. Absolutely no alcoholic drinks. Avoid consuming unnecessary medicines. Medicines should be kept to minimum.
May eat lot of sweets free of fat. B-complex vitamins are good. Eat lot of fresh green vegetables.
Wish you all the best.
