Treatment of Hepatitides
Treatment for hepatitis depends on the type a patient has. Hepatitis B individuals must rest and eat a diet high in proteins and carbohydrates to help repair the liver. Hepatitis C can be treated with interferon alfa-2b also known as Intron A. Hepatitides that are not viral can be treated by removing the offending agent such as alcohol or drugs. Steroids may be used to treat some forms of hepatitis.
