Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Firstly, fatty liver is a very benign condition. Basically, no drug is required.

Do, a liver function test. If the liver enzymes are elevated, only then you will require any drug.

Otherwise, lifestyle modification like avoiding alcohol and fatty foods are adequate for this condition.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Charles S Narasi's  Response
Hello, sagarmof,
First of all, we need to know the reason for fatty liver in your case.
Most common cause in the western hemisphere is alcohol related.
Next major association is obesity and a condition called "Metabolic
Syndrome" which includes high lipid levels, obesity, insulin resistance
and also Type-2 diabetes in majority of cases.
Fatty liver is also seen in protein depletion and malnutrition.
In some cases certain drugs can cause fatty changes.
Your ultrasound showed an enlarged liver with high echotexture
Grade 1-2 is mild and totally reversible with certain measures,
Losing weight, quitting alcohol, lowering the lipids by dietary and other
means, if diabetic, controlling the blood sugar very well, all these are
As for UdiLiv, it is a combination of Ursodeoxycholic acid which helps to
heal the liver .
I also recommend Vit-E 800 i.u. daily and 1000 mg. Vit-C daily.
I hope this helps you.
I wish you well.
