My doctor asked me to go for sonography of abdomen. I got the report of sonography of my abdomen on Jan 17, 2013. It indicates:
(i) Liver is normal in size, shows diffusely increased echogenecity and measures 14.4 cms. Intrahepatic biliary radicals and portal vasculature are normal. Main portal vein and C.B.D. are normal.
(ii) “Mild to moderate fatty infiltration of Liver
(iii) No other significant sonological abnormality detected in the abdomen and pelvis.
My doctor has advised me to take Udiliv 300mg (1 Tab/day). My weight is 81 Kg. Height is 178 Cms. I am 44 Yrs  & 6 Months old. Sex: Male
I am vegetarian. Do not eat egg, meat etc. I do not take alcohol regularly.  Occasionally I take 60 ml to a maximum 120 ml of Scotch whiskey (Only when I am away from home).
Please suggest :
(1)The line of treatment & causes of my Liver becoming fatty.
(2) May I occasionally take Scotch whiskey with the medicine “Udiliv 300mg".

Eagerly awaiting your reply;

Thanks & warm regards

i am not familiar with Udiliv but I sense its an herbal preparation that contains hepatoprotective herbs such as milk thistle.  I would try and avoid as much as possible the scotch whiskey
