C) Treatment of infectious hepatitis

The most effective treatment for hepatitis is prevention, which can be achieved by avoiding risky behaviors, such as sharing needles, unprotected sex, and drinking contaminated water. Vaccines are available to protect against some types of hepatitis; these are particularly recommended for individuals in high-risk groups.

If the infection does occur, treatment options depend on the type of hepatitis virus. Antiviral medications can be used to treat hepatitis B and C. At the same time, liver transplantation is an option in the most severe cases when the disease has progressed nonstop for many years.

Additionally, lifestyle modifications such as avoiding alcohol, engaging in regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy diet can help to reduce the risk of hepatitis and its complications.
