Hepatitis Health Record Software
People with Hepatitis should keep health records to effectively manage their condition and ensure comprehensive care. Maintaining a health journal allows individuals to track symptoms related to Hepatitis, such as fatigue, jaundice, abdominal pain, and nausea. They can also record potential triggers that may exacerbate their symptoms, such as alcohol consumption or certain medications.
Regular measurings of liver function tests, including levels of ALT, AST, and bilirubin, are essential to monitor the progress of the disease and assess liver health. Keeping a record of medications, including antiviral treatments or other therapies, helps ensure timely administration and proper dosages. Additionally, individuals can document any procedures or interventions they undergo, such as liver biopsies or imaging tests, to maintain an accurate medical history and facilitate communication with their healthcare team for tailored care.

To support my liver health, I will continue to follow a low-fat #diet and avoid #alcohol consumption.
Today, I felt fatigued and experienced mild abdominal discomfort. There was a slight yellowing of the skin and the whites of my eyes. #fatigue
I suspect that my recent consumption of a high-fat #meal may have contributed to the abdominal discomfort.
I took my prescribed antiviral medication #Epclusa as directed by my hepatologist this morning.
I had my routine #liver_function tests done today. Results are pending and will be discussed during my follow-up appointment next week.
My #temperature is normal, and I rate my fatigue level at 6 out of 10.
I have a scheduled appointment with my hepatologist #Dr.Brown next week to discuss the recent symptoms and review the liver function test results.
