Living with Hepatitis

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to manage the virus. We recommend daily exercise, avoiding fatty and sugary food and drinks, and keeping your alcohol intake to a minimum. This is one of the most important things you can do to look after your liver. Regular and heavy alcohol intake will increase liver damage, speeding up the progression of liver disease, and raising the risk of cirrhosis. 

If you have cirrhosis it's recommended you don't drink at all.

How to look after your liver

  • Have regular blood tests.

  • Avoid Alcohol - or limit your intake to two standard drinks a day for women or three standard drinks a day for men. Have two alcohol free days a week.

  • Discuss using herbal/alternative medicine with your doctor/pharmacist, as some may affect your liver.

  • Restrict fatty/sugary drinks and foods, as they can contribute to various conditions that can advance liver disease, for example fatty liver.

  • Keep within a healthy weight range.

  • Drinking kava should be avoided as it may cause more liver damage. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.
