Hepatitis A-1

May 8, 2011

They said I was cured of Hepatitis, but now they say I have Hepatitis A-1? What is that?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Not sure what you mean by "cured" of hepatitis. I assume this relates to having had one of many types of viral hepatitis (e.g. hepatitis A, B, or C virus). Hepatitis A-1 can represent an autoimmune type hepatitis, which is not infectious. You need to go back to your doctor and clarify what they are talking about.
