Hepatitis or ‘inflammation of the liver’ is caused by several factors like drugs, alcohol, toxins and inherited diseases. However, usually by hepatitis, we mean viral hepatitis
or hepatitis caused by viruses A, B, C, D, E and G. In India viruses A, B, and C are common causes of hepatitis.
Most of the complications that arise from liver diseases can be treated in early stages through dietary changes and medication. However, when these treatment options become ineffective, liver transplant
becomes the only available solution.
