Treatment options for acute hepatitis?
Hello, my friend's brother is 15 years old. He is suffering from acute hepatitis. Although he has consulted doctor. It's been a while he is not recovering. I would like to know the treatment options for acute hepatitis. Please leave your comments.
@bodhi There is no specific therapy for acute hepatitis A infection. Therefore, prevention is the key. An effective vaccine is available and recommended for anyone with liver disease. It also is recommended for people planning to travel to areas of the world where sanitation may be less than optimal. Clients who become infected with hepatitis and seek antiviral treatment—especially for hepatitis C—face long and in some cases difficult treatment regimens that, in the end, might not clear the virus from their bodies. Clients in treatment for chronic viral hepatitis might have to manage serious side effects of the treatment while striving to manage their behavioral health issues. People who decide to delay or forgo hepatitis treatment must learn new skills to live with their disease.
