Brief Answer: Your doctor has given you right suggestions. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Your doctor has given you right suggestions.You don't worry at all.This is common among adults due to changed life style. Fatty liver is due to deposition of excess fat within the liver cells and this is reversible condition.Your fibroscan is score is high so you should take it seriously. Fibroscan is done to see elasticity of liver tissues and increased score shows that there is rigidity and it can cause problems in future.It can be reversed by changing life style and diet. You should increase your physical activity and don't take saturated fat,fried and oily junk food.Take lot of vegetables and fruits in your diet. It is good that your SGOT and SGPT is now within normal limit.It was increased due to injury of liver cells induced by fat.You doctor has prescribed you right medicines.Tablet ursodyl will help in regeneration of liver cells and you should take it for at least 3-4 months. Now,another problem is increased triglycerides.You need tablet Fenofibrate 160 mg once daily.You need regular check up at least once in six months.It is good that you don't take alcohol. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
