Diagnosed with fatty liver, have large bruises on thighs. Taking beta blocker for high pulse rate. Cause of conditions?

I am a 37 year old female with slightly elevated liver enzymes . Hep negative. Doctor has diagnosed me with what he calls slight fatty liver . My father who is a doctor says that my liver enzymes are barely elevated. I am on a beta blocker because my pulse is always high and I take celexa . Recently I have noticed large bruises on my inner and outter thighs. Is this something related to an exisiting condition or maybe just a lack of proper nutrients? I am five foot 7, 138 lbs. I also have high tryglicerides, they were at 333 last time I had them checked a few months ago.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
The most common liver disorders is fatty liver which can be found in healthy people, but usually is resulting from elevated blood lipids, overweight and elevated blood sugar. If ultrasounds didnt find anything and viral markers are negative then you have no reason to be concerned. YOu should treat it by changing dietary and lifestyle habits. Do exercise, avoid alcohol, smoking, fats, fast food and carbonated drinks. Eat more fruit and vegetables, boiled meat and follow some of hepatoprotective diets. Findings usually improves on such measures. If not, then some medicines can be prescribed, but I suggest to go step by step. bruises may be related with liver damage but only if this is severe,othe possible causes are some hematologic and clotting disorders so you need to do certain blood tests to verify this.
Wish you good health.
