Brief Answer:
Get yourself evaluated

Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.

Coarse hepatic echotexture is a sonographic impression of liver when smooth hepatic echotexture of liver is lost. This can occur due to number of reasons like fatty liver, fibrosis of liver, cirrhosis, hepatitis etc. In diabetics also it can occurr.

I will advise you to get further tests like liver function tests, if there is any abnormality in them then further evaluation is required, otherwise not.

For constipation take lots of fibres and fluids in your diet. I mean to say lots of fruits and vegetables. Other food items that have high fibre content are oats, whole wheat , ragi, barley, greens, beans, peas, lentils.

Among allopathic medicines you can take Lactifibre which is the combination of lactitol and Isabghola, which are quite safe even for long term use.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you . Wish you a good health

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
