Pain in stomach

We had some food from outside but only my brother started feeling discomfort and pain in the stomach after an hour. We thought it might be gas problem but it still remained. Then he went for Ultrasound. It states Impression as 'GR. 1-2 FATTY LIVER'. The report also states 'Shows Hyperechoic echotexture'. Can anyone tell me what does this term means and what could be the possible problem?

Hello there..... Fatty liver occurs when excess fat accumulates inside liver cells. This means normal, healthy liver tissue becomes partly replaced with fatty tissue. The fat starts to invade the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas, so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains.... Consult Physician....
