Once the doctor analyzes your symptoms and medical history, they will perform a physical examination and ask you if you have been taking medications, dietary supplements, or herbal remedies, or if you have been exposed to chemicals.
They will also request imaging studies to confirm the diagnosis, such as:
- Blood tests.
- Computed tomography.
- Liver tissue biopsy.
The treatment to be followed will be established once the cause of hepatitis is determined and the injury produced is known, which consists of suspending intake or exposure to the toxic substance and prescribing medications to regenerate the liver and reverse the damage.
If there are serious symptoms, you will need to receive treatment in a hospital to eliminate the toxic substance as soon as possible.
When there is serious irreversible damage that causes severe liver failure, the only therapeutic option will be a liver transplant.
