Avoiding the progression of liver disease is essential to maintaining overall health and well-being.
The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 70 percent of those chronically infected with hepatitis C ultimately will develop chronic liver disease.
While most of those with chronic hepatitis B will remain "healthy carriers" for their entire lives and not demonstrate any evidence of liver damage, others will ultimately develop liver failure (cirrhosis) and/or liver cancer.
It is important that you take good care of yourself. In this section, we focus on treatment options, the role of nutrition and diet, and herbs and supplements, in the effort to remain healthy.
