Is liver disease contagious?

A Answers (1)

  • Liver disease is not contagious through casual interaction with an affected person. However, hepatitis, one cause of liver disease, can be transferred by blood, fecal contamination, and sexual contact. Liver disease can also be caused by infections related to contagious illnesses, such as chicken pox, although this is rare.
