Ultrasound discovered Fatty Liver with Enlarged spleen

Hello I am a 30yr old male have 2 beautiful children ages 3 and 7. I am  overweight! I currently weigh 287,, I am 5'10'' ,, The reason for this thread is because I was diagnosed with a Fatty Liver and enlarged spleen, I am so worried right now that I could barely type my hands are shaking of fear :(,,, I also was told that my AST and ALT wor high,, the first time they took the blood test it read: AST/SGOT 118  and ALT/SGPT 243      after about 3 weeks I went back and my tests showed AST/SGOT 82 and ALT/SPGT 210  doctor said they had dropped,, but for those three weeks i went on a strict diet and lost 13 pounds so i don't know if the weight loss had anything to do with my test results going down,, anyway that last time i got those tests done they also did an Ultrasound of my liver gallbladder etc.... they discovered a Fatty Liver and also an enlarged spleen,, and I am so scared about those results! this is what my ultrasoudn report said::

                                              ULTRASOUND OF THE ABDOMEN
FIINDINGS: Real time high-resolution ultrasound of the abdomen demonstrates a physiologically distended gallbladder with no evidence of cholelithiasis or pericholecystic fluid collection. The common bile duct measures 3.7 mm with no evidence of intrahepati biliary dilatation. The visualized pancreas is unremarkable. The right kidney appears normal and measures 11.8 cm. The left kidney appears normal and measures 11.3 cm. The visualized IVC and aorta are unremarkable. There is no evidence of free intraperitoneal fluid.

The liver is prominent with a coarse, echogenic appearance. The spleen is also enlarged. The galbadder wall measures 2.2 mm

IMPRESSION:
1. Borderline hepatosplenomegaly with fatty infiltration of the liver.
2. No evidence of cholelithiasis

Ok,, well that's what they found.. If someone has any information please let me know!! I have an appoinment in the next 3 weeks.. But for now I am in a total stressful and frightening situation. Please someone help thanks!!!!

If you read my profile you'll know I have had some similar experiences.  I think you need to take a good hard look at your diet.  MSG has 13 different names...learn them because it is poisonous.  Microwaving food stops food from being utilized in the body.  Start a basic diet of fresh fruits/vegetables.  Go to health food store, buy pH test strips and test the acidity in your body.
Start taking food-based multivitamin/mineral with calcium/magnesium supplements.  Probiotics in refrigerated section in health store (everyday).  Get your system back on the right tract.

I have today had exactly the same diagnosis, however I have also been diagnosed as having irritable bowel syndrome don't quite know where to start have tried various forms of dieting but nothing helps. How did you loose the weight please. I'm 43 and my partner has just had his second stroke, my 16 year old as recently run away, so I'm told stress is the major factor on the IBS if anyone can give me any advice I would really appreciate it
