Brief Answer:
ultrasound report suggests a condition known as 'Fatty liver'

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,

Thanks for writing in to us at hcm.

This is Dr.Riyanka and I am glad to be helping you with your query.

The ultrasound report suggests a condition known as 'Fatty liver'. Focal fatty sparing (localised absence of fatty change) in the left lobe of the liver may be seen in such cases and is not of much concern as it is not accompanied by any discrete lesions. Hence no need to worry.

Kindly consult a physician and get your Liver Function Tests done - for example:
Liver transaminases like SGOT and SGPT, albumin level, bilirubin level (direct and indirect), prothrombin time, PT/INR ratio, aPTT.

Also control your diet. Eat less oily food. Reduce carbohydrate intake. Eat more of vegetables and citrous fruits.
Do excercises , go for walks and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Hope this answers your query. Don't worry .
Do write back if you have any further doubts.

Get well soon
