So today I am bringing you the Alphabet of Hepatitis.
Sorry if you were expecting something else.
The thing is that there is Hepatitis, A, B,C, D, E and some of them are sexually transmitted so it is important to differentiate what each hepatitis is.
Now let’s start with what is hepatitis?
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by a viral infection these five types of hepatitis are a big deal because of the amount illnesses, epidemics and death that they cause.
Now the symptoms of hepatitis are relatively similar a fever, nausea, vomiting, joint pain, jaundice, loss of appetite and more so without further ado here is my handy dandy study guide of all things hepatitis.
Never thought It Would be making one of those.
Types of Hepatitis:
1. Hepatitis A:
Hepatitis A: the major way transmission is through contaminated food and water in fact Hepatitis A is primarily associated with dirty water and poor sanitation.
symptoms generally take about two to three weeks to show up however it is rarely fatal and there is a Hepatitis A vaccine.
2. Hepatitis B:
Hepatitis B: unlike “A” it is not spread through contaminated food or water. It is actually spread through infected blood, sexual contact or needles and symptoms take on average about two and a half months to show up in fact the virus can survive outside the body for at least seven days and still cause infection to a new person if left untreated Hepatitis B can cause liver cancer and serious damage Good news though! there is Hepatitis B vaccine. Also,90% of the people infected usually recover within six months
3. Hepatitis C:
Hepatitis C. “C” is spread primarily through coming into contact with infected blood transfusion, sharing needles and being born to a Hepatitis C mother.
Symptoms can take any where between two to six months to show up and 80% of cases don’t even have symptoms! However there are anti-viral drugs to take care of this. Unfortunately, no vaccine.
4. Hepatitis D:
Hepatitis D. well to get you to “D”, you must already have Hep B.
Therefore it is spread from sexual contact or blood.
No vaccine or treatment is available so prevention is essential.
5. Hepatitis E:
Hepatitis E. Again “E” is primarily through water and contaminated food symptoms take about forty days to show up.
Unlike “A” there is no vaccine though it is not fatal.
Remember prevention is always better than treatment so be careful of the sanitation around the food and water you drink.
So that was all things hepatitis from A to E.
