hepatitis A
Jan 19, 2013

can you die from hepatitis a and can hepatitis a go away

Response from Dr. Taylor

You CAN die of hepatitis A, but this is extremely rare. In most cases we catch hepatitis A and it goes away on its own quickly without any specific medications and without causing too much trouble in our bodies. The people who are at greatest risk with hepatitis A are people with serious underlying liver disease.

Hepatitis A typically goes away on its own and does not cause a chronic, or permanent infection.
