In this video, Dr. Joe Galati, with Liver Specialists of Texas, explains a frequent question he is asked. Patients wonder if there is a specific diet for those with chronic hepatitis C? Dr. Galati reviews the answer, and talks about the need for a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as fresh cuts of lean meat. There is no specific hepatitis C diet to follow, simply an unrefined, unprocessed diet.

Advertised diet plans specific to the liver are unfounded. In general, a diet full of fresh nutrients will be best for everyone, not just those with liver disease and hepatitis. A diet of fresh fruits and vegetables will support weight loss, also a benefit for those battling any form of liver disease. Read more at www.texasliver.com and www.yourhealthfirst.com.
