Hello and hope you are doing well.

Fatty liver can be due to alcoholism when it is called Alcoholic fatty liver disease. With abstinence, morphologic changes of the fatty liver are usually reversible. Your symptoms could be due to changes in the liver. It could also be due to other causes like diabetes and high triglyceride levels. These disorders can also cause fatty liver changes. So, check with your doctor to rule out these conditions.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
