The AIHA is working to advance research that examines the role diet could play in impacting autoimmune hepatitis (AIH).

Can diet help AIH?

The AIHA knows that diet is an important topic to patients with AIH. We often receive questions from our members asking us what diets they should adopt to improve their AIH. Unfortunately, there have been no studies conducted of specific diets in the treatment of AIH. The AIHA is actively working to start a diet study to learn more about what dietary changes could possibly help improve AIH.

Studies in inflammatory bowel disease, another autoimmune condition, have shown that the Mediterranean Diet can help improve symptoms and quality of life.
