Avoid alcohol: The most important change you can make is to eliminate alcohol from your life. Think of alcohol as adding fuel to the fire of hcv. Next, be careful about common medications like tylenol, (acetaminophen) that can increase liver damage if taken at high doses. Check with a doctor before taking any new meds, including herbal products. Other than that, eat a well balanced diet with fruits and veggies and get exercise.
