Hepatitis refers to inflammation of the liver. This generally happens as a result of an infection, drug or toxin exposure, or in some cases an autoimmune disorder. Hepatitis can be acute or chronic, and results in damage to the liver with a consequent decrease in liver function. This decrease in liver function can produce symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, nausea, appetite changes, headaches, joint pain, abdominal pain, changes in bowel function, yellow-tinged eyes or skin, and fever. Chronic hepatitis may not cause symptoms until it is advanced. Treatment strategies for hepatitis include supporting the regeneration of damaged liver cells, supporting liver function generally, and reducing the body’s toxic burden. If an infection is the cause, the treatment strategy may address this also. The most common infectious cause of hepatitis is chronic viral infection with hepatitis B or C, hence immune support and anti-virals may be useful. Alcoholism remains the most common non-infectious cause, though fatty liver disease resulting from inactivity along with high sugar and fat consumption is also becoming more common.
