Hepatitis Diet

Diet for hepatitis treatment is not as specific as it is for cirrhosis and fatty liver disease because food is not the cause of the disease.

However, a healthy body heals faster and is more likely to make a full recovery. Also, some medications taken for hepatitis cause side effects that affect your diet.

Learn about the dietary changes that you can make to get healthy and feel better!

Diet Tips for Hepatitis

Eat me!

Drink plenty of fluids

Hepatitis patients may experience vomiting or fever which is dehydrating and hard on your organs. Water is great, but sugar-free juices provide extra healthy calories too!


Antioxidants help break down nutrients and repair damaged cells. Berries and green tea are great sources. At least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day are recommended.

Natural vitamins and minerals

A diet rich in vitamins and minerals helps the liver regenerate cells and organs function at their best. Maximize the vitamins that you get from food sources instead of pills. Green leafy vegetables have the highest nutrient content.

Healthy fats

Omega 3 is essential in many functions including building healthy cells. Nuts, seeds, and avocado are excellent sources, and a healthy way to add extra calories into your diet.

Wholesome carbs

Complex carbohydrates that contain a lot of fiber help to lower your cholesterol and maintain a healthy weight. Eat whole grains, potatoes, and lentils.

Avoid these!


Sodium raises your blood pressure, increases inflammation, and swelling. It’s not recommended to consume more than 1500mg of salt per day, or 300mg in a meal. Read nutritional information on packages and cook at home. Avoid cured meats.


Alcohol is a strong toxin for your liver, even when you are healthy. If you already have a liver condition such as hepatitis, it is even more difficult for your liver to break down these toxins. Avoid any type of alcohol.

Unhealthy fats

Trans and saturated fats increase body fat and are hard on your liver. Eat less meat and dairy and limit your use of oil in cooking. Hydrogenated vegetable oil is particularly harmful and linked to cancer.

Fast food

Hamburgers, french fries, pizza, and other fast foods are simple c arbs and contain high levels of oil, salt, sugar, and fat – all things you should avoid! Eating fast food gives your liver extra toxins to process.


Genetically modified foods contain toxins that are hard on your liver. Common sources are dairy and processed foods that contain soy and corn like sugary breakfast cereals.
