Handling So That Hepatitis A Does Not Recur?
Hello, I just got out, I just got out of the hospital because of acute hepatitis a liver, and this is in the process of being treated. Both of the food I consume and how to prevent it. Thank you,
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, people who have been infected with hepatitis A will not get hepatitis A infection for the second time because their bodies already have immunity to this virus. Hepatitis A infection is also a self-limiting infection, meaning that it will heal on its own without the need for any therapy. The therapy given for hepatitis A sufferers is only supportive and symptomatic therapy, meaning that it is given fluids when the patient is dehydrated due to nausea, vomiting, so it is difficult to eat and drink, given a lowering of heat when there is fever, medicine to vomit if the patient vomits, etc.
Healing for hepatitis A is indeed quite long, the symptoms can persist for up to 3-6 months and some can even stay up to 9 months. Therefore you really need to be patient while waiting for this disease to heal itself from your body. Nothing can be done to accelerate the healing of this disease. Some things you can do:
Get enough sleep and rest every day
Drink enough every day (at least 2-3 liters a day)
Eat nutritious food regularly in sufficient quantities. If you still feel nauseous, you can start by eating soft foods first (make sure the nutrients remain complete, not just rice porridge), and slowly increase their consistency.
Make sure the cleanliness of the food and drinks you consume. Even though you can't get hepatitis A infection anymore, contaminated food and drink can still cause other gastrointestinal diseases.
Do sports and physical activity as much as you can. Sleeping in bed alone will cause your body to become weak and unpowered.
Also make sure you control your doctor according to the schedule given.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
