What is the outlook for hepatitis?

Most people recover fully from hepatitis even though it might take several months for the liver to heal. To help improve your health and to help speed up your recovery:

  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Practice good nutrition.
  • If you feel sick, rest.
  • Take any medicine prescribed for you.
  • Drink coffee, which has been shown to help the liver.
