Brief Answer:
It means there is exces fat which is accumulated in your liver

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Fatty liver over a period of time may start damaging heptocytes and liver function if not controlled / treated leading to a serious condition that is cirrhosis of liver. But as of now the findings are not concerning.

I would suggest diet modifications with less of oily and fat containing food , daily physical activity and maintaining proper weight. This will help you in reverting the liver structure.

Hope this information helps you
thank you

I have NAFLD which was discovered when my surgeion was about to remove a cancer tumor in the cnetral part of the liver. He did not do so when he saw the fatty liver. I do not drink alcohol and am not obeisi but my natural father died young with cirrohsis of the liver. The tumor was killed with an ablation and then chimo beeds in artery by tumor. I take Omeprazole 40 mg ever morning an hour before eating for the naseau which I have experience for years (actually led to the discovery of the tumr).

I eat mostly chicken and fish or shrimp, baked or stir fried. I d like to get off the Omeprazole.

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.
