What causes fatty liver grade 2?

I saw a doctor this morning for severe pain in my lower abdomen. Doctor prescribed Rabeprazole, domperidon, sparfloxacin and tiemonium methylesulfate for 7 to 10 days for my ache. With medication I am feeling better now. He also advised me to do tests: ultra-sonogram of whole abdomen, blood CP and urine RE. Report says that my lever has got enlargement (13.89 cm) and I have fatty liver grade 2. My urine RE report is ok. However, blood CP says WBC total count is little high (11.6). I am worried about the liver enlargement. Please advice me what should I do now?

Hi and welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thank you for your query. I am Dr. Rommstein, I understand your concerns and I will try to help you as much as I can.

There are some medications which may cause fatty liver and domperiodn is one of it, however,in most cases this is caused by diet and alcohol.
There are two main types of fatty liver disease so treatment depends on this: Alcoholic liver disease and Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. You can get alcoholic liver disease from drinking lots of alcohol. It can even show up after a short period of heavy drinking, other causes are obesity and hepatitis B and C.
If you have alcoholic liver disease and you are a heavy drinker, quitting is the most important thing you can do. Talk to your doctor about how to get help. If you don't stop you could get complications like alcoholic hepatitis or cirrhosis.
Even if you have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, it can help to avoid drinking. If you are overweight or obese, do what you can to gradually lose weight -- no more than 1 or 2 pounds a week.
Eat a balanced and healthy diet and get regular exercise. Limit high-carb foods such as bread, grits, rice, potatoes, and corn. And cut down on drinks with lots of sugar like sports drinks and juice. This should lead to improvement. You should repeat your liver markers in 3-4 weeks.
