Spotlight: Nutrition and Health
This month, HepatitisC.net is focusing on nutrition and health. Many living with hepatitis C or undergoing treatment find nutrition can play a role in their health. For instance, following a low salt diet can have benefits for managing ascites. Or, eating healthy foods such fresh fruits and vegetables can help improve your energy level. Over the month of March, we will be sharing and discussing the health benefits of a good nutrition plan.
Find the different ways you can participate in this month's Spotlight below.
