Answer

Instruct the patient to avoid all alcohol use. Inform the infected patient about the health practices listed in Deterrence/Prevention. The patient and other household members should be vaccinated against hepatitis A and B viruses.

For patient education information, see the Hepatitis Center and Liver, Gallbladder, and Pancreas Center, as well as Hepatitis C.
