Hello and welcome to HCM.

The causes for hepatosplenomegaly are the following:
-Infections (hepatitis, infectious mononucleosis, rubella, etc.)
-Blood disorders (anemia, thalessaemia, etc.)
-Metabolic disorders
-Liver diseases
-Portal hypertension
and many more.

Please note that hepatosplenomegaly is just a symptom, and there should be some underlying condition. Please visit your doctor for a more elaborate examination including a complete blood workup.

And yes, this condition is reversible, once the cause is treated this gradually subsides. In the meantime, you should avoid all fatty, oily food, and also meat.

I hope this information helps. Best wishes.
