Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Report suggests that your mother has mild fatty liver and mild splenomegaly.
Mild fatty liver is reversible stage and it is due to many reasons like obesity,diabetes mellitus etc.You also need few blood investigations like routine hemogram,RBS,LFT,RFT,Lipid profile.Treatment depends accordingly.
Mild splenomegaly may also be due to many reasons like recent or past infection.It is not very significant.
Rest of the findings are within normal limit.

Take Care
