Hepatitis B Treatments
Acute hepatitis B usually doesn’t require treatment in people whose immune system can fight the infection. Chronic hepatitis B may require medication.
There is no cure for chronic hepatitis B, but oral or injected medications can slow the disease process or prevent further liver damage. In addition, lifestyle changes, including eating a healthy diet and eliminating all alcohol, can be helpful.
When chronic hepatitis B leads to liver failure, a liver transplant may be necessary.
