What is hepatitis?

Hepatitis is liver inflammation. Inflammation is the swelling that tends to occur when body tissues are harmed or deceased. It has the capacity to harm your liver. Your liver's ability to function is harmed due to the swelling and damage.

Hepatitis is segregated as either an acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) infection. Some kinds of acute infections cause hepatitis. However, acute and chronic infections can be caused by other types.

Understanding the Hepatitis B and C:

A virus in the blood causes hepatitis. Hepatitis B & C is contracted through being exposed to the infected persons, contaminated persons, and just like HIV. Hepatitis B and C induce liver inflammation. Hepatitis B can be prevented with a vaccination, while hepatitis C does not have one.

The signs and indications of Hepatitis B and C:

Hepatitis B usually develops slowly over several decades in most patients, and as a result, most patients have no symptoms. However, people with advanced liver disease, such as cirrhosis, may develop complications and symptoms that indicate liver failure. Other signs and symptoms include:

Dark-colored urine
Fatigue
Pain in the joint
Vomiting
Yellow discoloration of the skin or eyes
Blood vomiting

The majority of people with chronic hepatitis C show no symptoms. However, some people may experience vague symptoms such as weariness and abdominal discomfort on the right side.

It is essential to get medical assistance at the beginning stages to avoid further liver complications.

Diagnosis of Hepatitis:

Hepatitis C infected people also undergo the similarkind of tests apart from,

HCV antibody test :

This test determines whether or not an individual has ever been infected with the hepatitis C virus. Antibodies, which are proteins released into the bloodstream after someone catches the hepatitis C virus, are looked for in this test, also known as an anti-HCV test. Best treatment for hepatitis C depends on the results of the diagnostic test.

Viral Load Test :

The viral load test, also referred to as the hepatitis virus DNA quantification, is a blood test that assesses the level of hepatitis virus DNA (viral load) in patients with chronic infection. The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method is used to test the blood.

Genotype Test :

The genotype of HCV is primarily established for diagnosis by sequencing the genomic nucleotide sequence or by kit-based assays that use complementary probes to report the genotype present in a specimen.

Treatment for Hepatitis B and C:

Hepatitis infection once diagnosed, the specialist may recommend the viral hepatitis treatment accordingly. The Hepatitis infection is divided into acute and chronic.

Acute Hepatitis Treatment:

Acute infection is generally short-lived, and intense treatment is not required. People with acute infection are generally advised to take proper rest and nutrition to help the body fight infection. Hepatitis B treatment depends on the severity of the condition. Some patients may undergo antiviral therapy.

Chronic Hepatitis Treatment:

If the infection does not seem to settle, the specialist recommends antiviral injections. Antiviral medications can aid in the battle against the virus and reduce the infection's capacity to harm your liver. These medications are given orally. Consult your specialist to determine which medication is best for you.

Liver Transplant:

A liver transplant may be an option if your liver has been seriously damaged. The surgeon removes your diseased liver and replaces it with a healthy liver during a liver transplant. Most liver transplants come from deceased donors, although a small proportion come from living donors who give a piece of their liver.

The hepatitis B virus causes hepatitis B, a liver infection. Some people with hepatitis B get sick for a few weeks (known as "acute" infection). Still, for others, the disease advances to chronic hepatitis B, which is a dangerous, lifelong illness.

Even if their signs and symptoms are severe, most adults with hepatitis B recover completely. Chronic (long-term) hepatitis B infection is evident common in infants and children. Hepatitis B can be prevented with a vaccine, early vaccination can help in preventing the infection.

Saturated fats should be avoided, such as fatty cuts of meat and foods fried in oil. Avoid eating raw or undercooked shellfish (e.g., clams, mussels, oysters, scallops) because they may be contaminated with Vibrio vulnificus, a very toxic bacteria to the liver and can cause significant damage.
