Hi there... It's normal to have some amount of fat in case liver when it exceeds 5 to 10 percent of your liver weight then it is referred as fatty liver... It can be alcoholic fatty liver,obesity,hyperlipidemia, or high levels of fats in the blood,diabetes,genetic inheritance,rapid weight loss,side effect of certain medications, including aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, and tetracycline....so you need to have clinical examination and evaluation to find the cause as treatment is mainly reducing risk factors as there is no specific medication for fatty liver... If you are alcoholic quit as soon as possible, obese try to reduce weight, if diabetic keep your glucose levels under control... Do regular exercise,yoga, pranayama, meditation etc...Consult physician they will guide you further.

If you have a doubt, please get a liver function test and urine routine exam and consult your family doctor. Fatty liver is a very common finding on Ultrasound and should not be worried about unless there is ongoing alcohol usage.
