Prevent complications of hepatitis C virus

Liver damage is a major concern for people with hepatitis C virus, because hepatitis C can cause inflammation or swelling of the liver, and this inflammation may eventually lead to liver damage known as cirrhosis.

Liver cirrhosis is a disease in which scars are replaced instead of healthy liver tissue, which affects liver function.

Here are some things you can do to keep your liver healthy:

  • Do not drink alcohol and avoid using drugs.

  • Access and maintain a healthy weight.

  • Exercise most days.

  • Follow a low-fat diet, eat rich fiber full of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, reduce trans fat and saturated fat.

  • Avoid eating raw oysters, including oysters, crayfish, shrimps, and mussels.

  • Talk to your doctor before taking vitamins or other supplements.
