Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is an inflammation of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. Left untreated, hepatitis B can become a serious, chronic condition that may permanently damage the liver.

Many people with hepatitis B experience symptoms similar to the flu. Symptoms, which last for several weeks, may appear up to five months after infection.

Hepatitis B is treated with the following:

  • Rest
  • Avoiding alcohol
  • Increasing fluid intake
  • A healthy diet

Chronic hepatitis B is often treated with medication at Ogden Clinic GI at McKay serving Salt Lake City and Ogden, UT, that requires monitoring for side effects. Severe cases of hepatitis B may require a liver transplant to replace a damaged liver.
