Appropriate Treatment Of Hepatitis?
Hello, I want to ask if Hepatitis +4 can still be treated or not? If possible, please give the treatment method. thank you
Hi Adi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Hepatitis is an inflammatory disease of the liver. Inflammation of the liver can be caused by many things, but in general it is divided into infectious hepatitis and non-infectious hepatitis. There are various types of infectious hepatitis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hepatitis D, hepatitis E. Meanwhile, non-infectious hepatitis can be caused by alcohol, hepatotoxic drugs, certain toxins, autoimmune response (autoimmune hepatitis), fatty liver non alcoholic.
You should clarify in advance what symptoms you are experiencing and when these symptoms appear, a history of sexual intercourse, use of illegal injection drugs, a history of blood transfusions, organ transplants, or exposure to blood of other people who have hepatitis, history of consumption alcohol, certain drugs, and so on. In addition, you should also clarify again what kind of examination you did (whether the test for viral hepatitis, abdominal ultrasound, or other tests).
The prognosis (possibility) of recovery from each of the causes of hepatitis above can vary. and from the results of the test you mentioned, it is not known what hepatitis you have. Therefore, it is better if you clarify the things mentioned above beforehand or better yet, if you consult directly with the doctor who asks for the examination.
Just like the prognosis, how to treat each of the causes of hepatitis above also varies. Some causes of hepatitis (such as hepatitis A, acute hepatitis B, non-alcoholic fatty liver) are unlikely to require specific treatment, only supportive treatment. However, some other causes of hepatitis such as chronic hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hepatitis due to autoimmune diseases, may require other therapy, including antiviral administration.
For now, some of the things you can do include:
prevent transmission to family and closest people (if it is caused by infectious hepatitis) Avoid alcohol consumption Avoid consumption of drugs that have hepatotoxic properties, always consult the use of drugs with your doctor, including the use of free drugs. Consumption of healthy and free foods fat Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit Make sure you do regular exercise, drink enough, avoid excessive stress.
