Cirrhosis Prevention

Prevention

To decrease the risk of cirrhosis:

  • Drink alcohol in moderation. Moderate alcohol intake is no more than two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women.
  • Practice safe sex to lower your chance of getting hepatitis B.
  • If you use IV drugs, do not share needles, which can spread hepatitis B, C, or D.
  • Receive hepatitis vaccines.
  • Follow your doctor's recommendations about blood tests when taking medications that may damage the liver.
