El médico le preguntará acerca de sus síntomas e historial médico y le realizará un examen físico.

Exámenes para diagnosticar hepatitis podrían incluir los siguientes:

Exámenes Sanguíneos - Su sangre es revisada para detectar la presencia de antígenos y anticuerpos de hepatitis. Los antígenos son proteínas externas que son parte de los virus de hepatitis. Los anticuerpos son proteínas que su cuerpo ha producido para combatir a los agentes infecciosos.

Estudios de Función Hepática - Se miden los niveles de varias enzimas hepáticas, bilirrubina, y factores de coagulación en su cuerpo para determinar cómo está funcionando su hígado.

Hepática Biopsia - Retiro de una muestra de tejido del hígado para que sea examinada bajo un microscopio.
