Hepatitis b and healthy liver: 7 foods that should be found in your kitchen.

Hepatitis B is a serious liver infection that causes inflammation (swelling and reddening) that can lead to liver damage. Hepatitis B, can cause cirrhosis (hardening or scarring), liver cancer and even death.

When hepatitis, of which there are several types, persists for longer than six months, it is deemed chronic. Symptoms may not develop until the condition becomes more severe, usually when liver damage has already begun.

The symptoms of acute hepatitis B can include:

* Abdominal pain, especially around the liver

* Dark urine and/or pale stool

* Feeling tired and rundown (fatigue)

* Fever

* Joint and/or muscle pain

* Loss of appetite

* Nausea

* Vomiting

* Yellowing of the skin, whites of the eyes and under the fingernails (jaundice).Click to continue.

The goal of a hepatitis diet is to minimize stress on your liver, which is already compromised by the inflammation that defines the condition. Perhaps surprisingly, an ideal eating plan for chronic hepatitis is simply one that aligns with healthy eating guidelines.
