July 28th is dedicated to raising awareness for viral hepatitis, a group of infectious diseases (A through E) that affects millions of people worldwide. Deaths from hepatitis have been increasing, with over one million succumbing to the disease each year.
For those with any of the 5 types of hepatitis, consuming a healthy, nutritious diet is important to support the liver and prevent disease progression.
What is viral hepatitis?
Viral hepatitis is inflammation of the liver caused by a virus. The different types of the virus are named A, B, C, D, and E. The most common ones are A, B, and C.
Hepatitis A is caused by the hepatitis A virus, which can be found in contaminated food or water or in the stool and blood of infected individuals.
Hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B virus, which can be contracted from the blood, semen, or other body fluids of an infected individual.
Hepatitis C is caused by the hepatitis C virus, which can be spread by contact with the blood of an infected individual (typically by sharing needles).
Symptoms of the disease include fatigue, nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain, and jaundice (yellowing of skin/eyes). However, some individuals have no symptoms.
Consume a healthy, well-balanced diet that incorporates fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, low- or non-fat dairy, and healthy fats.
Eat cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower, broccoli, and kale, which are known to have protective factors to promote liver health.
Eat enough protein to prevent malnutrition and muscle wasting (i.e. chicken, fish, and other lean meats).
Check for mold on food products to prevent the consumption of aflatoxins, which are carcinogenic.
Maintain an adequate vitamin D status by taking supplements, going outside in the sun, or consuming foods high in vitamin D.
