Hepatitis C is an infectious disease that causes severe liver damage and is caused by ingestion of a particular virus. Often it becomes chronic and requires long-term treatment. This is due to the fact that the restoration of basic liver functions, to which hepatitis C causes damage, is very slow. Proper nutrition is important in this.

Meat dishes are alternated with fish. However, fish should also be low-fat varieties.
Dairy products are rich in calcium and protein. Of these, preference should be given to cheese, non-acid curd, kefir. It is necessary to choose dairy products of low fat content. Mayonnaise, sharp sauces are replaced with sour cream. It is recommended to eat more vegetables, but they should be wiped, but from fresh berries and fruits prepare juices, fruit drinks and compotes. From the diet it is necessary to exclude smoked products and pickles. In addition, we will have to give up spinach, beans and sorrel. Sweets, coffee, ice cream, baked goods – all these products are also banned. In chronic hepatitis C, the dishes should be wiped and crushed.

After all, it is the fats that allow the normalization of the metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins. Enough should be and animal protein.

One of the features of hepatitis C is the absence or short-term icterus of the integument. The icteric (icteric) sclera of the eyes, the skin – is a symptom of liver damage, or rather a symptom of an increase in the concentration of bile pigment in the blood.
Acute viral liver damage is Botkin's disease. Currently, the disease is identified as hepatitis A. The main symptoms of the disease: weakness, fever, chills, profuse sweating, icteric staining of the skin and visible mucous membranes, urine of dark beer color, colorless feces.
Group B hepatitis can be infected only by contact with the biological material of a sick person. In most cases, infection occurs unnoticed for the patient, so this disease is detected either during a laboratory examination, or when a characteristic symptomatology occurs.
Chronic hepatitis C is a complex infectious disease. In medical circles, this diffuse disease of the liver was called "affectionate killer." This is due to the fact that very often hepatitis of group C proceeds asymptomatically (from 6-ти months and more) and is revealed only at carrying out of complex clinical researches of blood.
Alcoholic hepatitis does not develop immediately: with regular use of critical doses of ethanol, the patient first develops fatty liver disease and only then alcoholic steatohepatitis. At the final stage, the disease flows into cirrhosis of the liver.
At the moment when a person falls ill with hepatitis, other pressing problems for him go into the background. The main task of the patient is a speedy recovery and a return to the habitual way of life. Human infection with the hepatitis B virus can occur not only on contact with the patient's biological material.
With any liver disease in folk medicine, there is a universal remedy. And the main thing is that it is available to everyone and it's safe – it's fresh carrot juice! The fact is that vitamin A, which is found in carrots, has a beneficial effect on the liver, gently cleansing it and restoring its cells.
