1 doctor agrees
In brief: Medication related
Some diabetic meds are metabolized or work in the liver. If the hepatitis a affects your liver function, then it's ability to process those medications will be altered.

In brief: Yes
Although most people recover within 6 months, hepatitis a can have complications in anybody.
Hepatitis a is fatal in about 1 out of 1000 people your age (22). Complications are uncommon but include pancreatitis and acalculous cholecystitis. You should think about getting close monitoring with regular measurements of serum als, ast, and gamma-gt until confirmation of resolution.
