Hepatitis is a major public health problem. Many illnesses and conditions can cause inflammation of the liver, for example, autoimmune Hepatitis. Hepatitis is most often viral, due to infection with one of the hepatitis viruses (A, B, C, D, and E) or another virus (such as those that cause infectious mononucleosis, cytomegalovirus disease, or yellow fever). The main non viral causes of hepatitis are alcohol and drugs.
There should be better awareness about certain drugs with greater potential to cause liver inflammation.
One single example that is a common scenario is Tylenol taken in higher doses and mixed with alcohol.
Fatty liver is another condition ( disorder often occur in conjunction with obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol levels), in people who do not consume significant amounts of alcohol, is linked with greater chances for hepatitis.
