Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
You should find the exact cause of liver changes. this can be confirmed only by liver biopsy and then right treatment can be planned. also you should check your heaptitis markers to rule out hepatitis infections. till y ou do these tests you should avoid alcohol completely,eat hepatoprotective diet and regulate blood sugar and lipids.
Wish you good health. Regards
