    I have been a heavy drinker since I was 16. I'm 27 now, and after a recent binge that ended me up in the hospital, I was tested and told I have Hepatitis A, B, and C... all three!! How rare is this? Are they all curable if I stop drinking and abusing my body? What medicine/treatment should I be looking for? And is there anything specific I should ask the doctor? Anything else, like pop, certain foods that I should avoid? Anyone who knows anything about this... I would greatly appreciate what you have to say. I need help! And I need answers! Please... I am clueless.

    You need an ultrasound, MRI, and viral load counts, avoid medications and foods difficult for your liver, like processed and fast food as well as Tylenol. I'm not sure how rare it is but that is very young for all three, I would get retested.
