About:
• Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. The liver is a vital organ that processes nutrients, filters the blood, and fights infections. When the liver is inflamed or damaged, its function can be affected.
• Causes - Heavy alcohol use, toxins, some medications, and certain medical conditions can cause hepatitis.
• Types - It is caused by a group of viruses known as the ‘hepatotropic’ (liver-directed) viruses and can be of type A, B, C, D and E. It may also be caused by ‘Varicella Virus’ (which is responsible for Chickenpox)
• Treatment - Hepatitis A and E go away on their own and require no specific antiviral medications. For Hepatitis B and C, effective medications are available. The vaccine is available for Hepatitis B.
• Severity – Acute inflammation of liver presents with sickness which may include jaundice, fever and vomiting. Chronic inflammation of liver lasts more than six months, but essentially shows no symptoms.
