Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. For your information, fatty liver happens when fat builds up in the liver and it is not a cancer. Although having small amounts of fat in your liver is normal, but too much can become a health problem. It can cause liver inflammation, which can damage your liver and create scarring. In severe cases, this scarring can lead to liver failure.

There’s 2 types of fatty liver. Alcoholic fatty liver disease that develop in heavy alcoholic drinker and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The causes of fatty liver that occur in a non alcoholic drinker is not yet sure but it might be associated with obesity, high blood sugar, insulin resistance, high levels of fat, especially triglycerides, in your blood.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for us to provide you to know more in detail, we greatly suggest that you refer this to the doctor that is treating you.
