Hi there, fatty changes of the liver is seen very frequently in people who consume alcohol and also in people who have some derangement in fat metabolism. It can also be seen as the first change in along standing case of liver disease due to any cause. Fatty liver is essentially a reversible condition and can be taken care of by using medicines and modification of diet. Do contact a gastroenterologist and take his advise. The tiny crystals in the kidney can be ignored. Take care.
