Hello, ra21dip,
I hope your doctor checked you for the three major Hepatitis viruses,
Type-A ,B ,& C.
If your liver tests came back to normal within 4-6 weeks and you are
feeling perfectly fine, most likely you had Type-A hepatitis. This does
not lead to a chronic liver disease. If you had acute Type-B or Type-C
Hepatitis , some of those cases go into a chronic phase. In such cases
the liver enzymes stay abnormal or elevated for more than 6 months.
You were probably told to stay away from fatty or fried foods during
your jaundice. Now that all your tests are normal, you can eat more
normal foods. If you drink alcohol, I would advice you to stay away
from it for at least six months.
You should take a good Super B-Complex Vitamin daily along with
Vit-C 1000 mg. a day. High protein diet is good. Keep your weight
under control and do regular excercises three times a week.
You should stay healthy for a ripe old age !
I wish you well.
