Hepatitis C Diet
Hepatitis C Diet: SummaryFor most people, a hepatitis C diet is no different than the proper diet they should follow if they didn't have hepatitis C. A diet for people with hepatitis C includes eating a heart-healthy diet -- one that is low in fats and high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains -- and maintaining a healthy weight. A good hepatitis C diet also involves eliminating alcohol and being careful with dietary supplements (see Hepatitis C and Vitamins).
For those on combination therapy or who have cirrhosis, a special hepatitis C diet may be required. Talk to your healthcare provider for a referral to a registered dietitian, who can create a diet specific to your needs.
