Noted your report of ultrasonography, which shows fatty changes and raised cortical echogenicity.

Don't worry about fatty liver. It is a common condition nowadays in which excess fat accumulated in hepatocytes. For that reduce weight if you are obese. Moderate exercise should be done regularly like walking or running or swimming. Usually, it doesn't lead to severe hepatic disease.

Raised cortical echogenicity is a non-specific finding and further workup needed in the form of serum creatinine, urea estimation and eGFR estimation.

Kindly mention if you are having diabetes and hypertension.

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