Hello Ashwanee
Thank you for getting in touch with us. As I see, you have been diagnosed with fatty liver. The viral hepatitis marker tests that your Doctor conducted on you were to see if hepatitis was in anyway related to your fatty liver. Fatty liver is a commonly seen condition in many people. It can be caused due to many factors like obesity, alcohol consumption, liver damage etc. Most of the times it can be managed easily with therapy and lifestyle changes. We would also recommend you undergo a complete Liver Function Test (LFT) and ultrasound to see if there is any additional liver damange. Hope this helped
