Thanks for posting a query in HCM

Fatty liver is casued by Alcohol and also non alcoholic causes but in your case it should be related to alcohol both amount and duration are important in development of liver disease,Contrary to general opinion, the type of alcoholic beverage is not important.There is no ‘threshold level’ of alcohol intake beyond which liver damage must occur. Instead, there is a gradual transition of increasing liver injury as the quantity increases.

According to studies those who drink more than 200 ml for >10 years have 40%chance of developing cirrhosis.

Obesity, high cholesterol level,Pre diabetes or diabetes are other non alcoholic causes some other are

Medications,Viral hepatitis,Autoimmune or inherited liver disease,Rapid weight loss,Malnutrition.

Alcohol is metabolized in liver mainly small amount in kidney and stomach.

Fatty liver is due to reduced fatty acid oxidation.

So avoid or stop alcohol,your gas problem also may related to this as it can cause peptic ulcer disease or Non ulcer dyspepsia.

Take healty life style regular exercise, drink lot of water.

Consume fresh fruits and regular breakfast,lunch and dinner at proper time with a walk after dinner for 30 min shuld help you lot

You can consult physician or a Gastroenterologist in this regard if problem persist.

Good luck

Hi, Welcome to HCM, i am Dr. Das
For your gas problem just take lansoprazole 30mg one tablet daily for 6 weeks.
For fatty liver just stop alcohol intake. Because if you continue to take alcohol regularly it may turn into severe disease.
