I am a 55-year-old male. I have diabetes and currently suffering from jaundice with hepatitis E positive 10 points. I got tested for ANA and the report shows weak positive 1:100. What will be the complications? Is it life threatening?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Usually hepatitis E is not life threatening in most of the patients. It significantly impairs the life for two months. The complete recovery occurs within one or two month. There is no residual complications as well. You need to take rest until you improve clinically. Take more fruits like apple juice, sugar cane juice, coconut water, etc. Do not take excess fatty foods. Your ANA can be false positive due to hepatitis infection. I suggest you repeat ANA once infection is over.
