What foods do you suggest for me with Hepatitis C Genotype 1 to assist my liver? I already do not drink alcohol. Thank you for your help.

I am glad to hear that you avoid alcohol, please continue to do so. There is not a specific diet that can be helpful for people with Hepatitis C Genotype 1, but I would suggest avoiding processed foods and eating as healthy as possible. Visit the Speaking of Women’s Health Recipe Box for healthy and delicious recipes.

There are other therapies that can be useful, including:

  • Dietary supplements
  • Herbs
  • Unconventional treatments that have not been rigorously studied and the results can be extremely varied.
