Hi,
Increased echogenicity may indicate fatty liver. In this condition fat gets deposited in the liver. Though alcohol intake can cause fatty liver there are many other causes including diabetes mellitus. In your case fatty liver could be due to diabetes. Adequate control of diabetes will reverse the condition.
