None: Unless you are in the end stages of cirrhosis with hepatic failure there is no need to adjust your diet as long as you have a healthy balanced intake. There is therapy available if you have chronic active hepatitis b, and should consult with a hepatologist or a GI doctor or id doctor with interest in hepatitis. Good luck.
