Hi and welcome to HCM.
this is not some serious liver damage and this is just the beginning of liver fibrosis. 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. sacrring is manifested by fatigue,jaundice, hepatomegaly abdominal pain and many other nonspecific symptoms. but you just need frequent follow up and you ll prevent serious liver damage.
Wish you good health.
