How to Treat Liver Inflammation

The treatment for liver inflammation will depend on the underlying cause of the inflammation. Some common treatment options include:

Antiviral medications: If the cause of the liver inflammation is a viral infection, such as hepatitis A, B, or C, antiviral medications may be prescribed to help clear the virus from the body.

1Corticosteroids: These medications can help reduce inflammation in the liver and may be used in cases of autoimmune hepatitis.

1. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): NSAIDs such as ibuprofen and naproxen can help reduce inflammation and pain in the liver. However, these medications can cause side effects such as stomach bleeding, so they should be used with caution.

Lifestyle changes: In cases of liver inflammation caused by alcohol abuse or fatty liver disease, making lifestyle changes such as quitting alcohol and adopting a healthy diet and exercise routine can help improve liver health and reduce inflammation.

1Surgery: In severe cases of liver inflammation, surgery may be necessary to remove a damaged portion of the liver.
