Hepatitis | Do Sunlight And Hepatitis C Meds Mix?

Much of the research that has been done on people with chronic liver disease as well as those with chronic Hepatitis C has shown that their bodies lack the proper amount of vitamin D needed. Vitamin D is important because it aids in the absorption of calcium, which is essential for normal development of healthy teeth and bones. And it also helps your body to keep healthy levels of the minerals calcium and phosphorus in the blood.

Your body’s unique ability to produce vitamin D naturally from sunlight exposure is a tool that you can use as another way to keep your body healthy. There are numerous medications, both prescriptions as well as over the counter, that can cause an increased risk of burning when exposed to the sun. However, you should know that there are precautions you can take that will allow you to get the sun your body needs without causing additional harm.

Getting just a few minutes of sun per day while protecting yourself will help you feel better and is beneficial for your long-term health. Learn more on how to protect yourself from the sun.
