lybrate-user! had gone through your reports. It’s very minimal fatty liver which can be seen in many people who are a bit obese. You can stop taking the tablet if you took it for 1 week. No need of any medication. All you need is healthy life style. Pls do exercise and jogging. Avoid high fat diets like red meat sugary drinks. And remember this is completely reversible once you do this diet follow up. Pls follow healthy lifestyle, protein diet avoid fat diet and regular exercise for 3 months strictly. Repeat scan after 3 months and check. It will be norml usually stay healthy! stay safe!
