Understanding Hepatitis

Hepatitis refers to the inflammation of liver cells that leads to organ damage. Generally, hepatitis is caused due to a viral infection. Primarily, Hepatitis A, B, and C are considered fatal, while its other types include D, E, and G.

Hepatitis A

The least risky type of Hepatitis. It is generally contracted due to the consumption of contaminated food or water. Other than this, poor personal hygiene has also been known to transmit the disease. A prevention vaccine for Hepatitis A exists.

Hepatitis B

An intimate physical contact such as unprotected sex with a hepatitis patient, mother breastfeeding a baby, or sharing needles for drugs could lead to Hepatitis B. This type is relatively more harmful than Hepatitis A as some people have a hard time recovering from it and continue to act as carriers of the virus in spite of no visible symptoms.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is caused either due to the use of infected needles in tattoos or contact with contaminated blood. Symptoms could take time to appear, but the consequences can be as severe as contracting cirrhosis, which can cause liver failure.
