Hi,

You should have indicated the grade of fatty liver grade, 1 fatty liver is a normal thing and is a normal finding in adults. Usually cholestrol and triglycrides are mildly deranged a statin should be taken for 3 months like Atorvastain to lower the level of cholesterol and triglycerides. The overall reports are not that bad. Maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ramesh Kumar
