Welcome to Health Care Magic
You have not provided information about your age , you history of any drugs , family history or drinking history ( Alcohol ). How ever let me provide you information.
Some fat in the liver is normal. But if fat makes up more than 5%-10% of the weight of your liver, you may have alcoholic or nonalcoholic liver disease. In some cases, these diseases can lead to serious complications.
If you don't have drinking habits then The cause of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is not clear. Certain factors tend to increase risk, but in some cases, no risk factors show up. However, Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease tends to run in families. It also shows up most often in people who are middle-aged and overweight or obese. These people often have high cholesterol or triglycerides and diabetes or prediabetes (insulin resistance), as well.

Other potential causes of fatty liver disease include:

Viral hepatitis
Autoimmune or inherited liver disease
Rapid weight loss
There is no specific treatment at this time for fatty liver disease. However, getting treatment for any underlying disease, such as diabetes, is essential. And you can take other steps to improve your condition.

If you have alcoholic liver disease and you are a heavy drinker, quitting drinking is the most important thing you can do.
I Hope my answer will help you.
take care have a great day.
