Today is World Hepatitis Day and this year’s campaign theme for WHD is elimination. Hepatitis is usually caused by a viral infection where the liver becomes inflamed. There are various other causes of hepatitis including drug and alcohol abuse, toxins, and it has even been known to occur as a side effect of certain medications.

There are many different types of Hepatitis, such as Hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, Autoimmune Hepatitis and Alcoholic Hepatitis. Not only does this disease affect the liver, but it can also lead to liver cirrhosis, cancer of the liver and liver failure. Hepatitis C is the cause of most chronic liver diseases.

How do you know you have hepatitis?

The most common symptoms of hepatitis are:
• Dark colored urine
• Pain in the abdomen
• Fatigue
• Pale stool
• Mild fever
• Loss of appetite
• Flu
• Muscle and/or joint pain
• Sudden weight loss
• Yellow eyes and skin
• Nausea and vomiting
• Itchy skin
At times, the symptoms are too subtle to notice and an affected person may only become aware of the problem after their liver is damaged. Some people might not show any symptoms at all; it may not even show up on a blood test.

How to fight hepatitis

Although it’s possible to prevent Hepatitis A, B and C through vaccination, unhygienic practices can still make you contract the disease. The stool of an infected person is infectious and can infect another person. Antiviral medicines, adequate rest, avoiding alcohol and indulging in hygienic practices can help fight hepatitis. Persons with Hepatitis A & E improve on their own and the patient often feels better within a few weeks. Hepatitis B, C and D usually require medication and in extreme cases, a liver transplant might be required.

Hepatitis makes the body very weak and an affected person may feel tired and get fatigued easily. The body becomes very vulnerable and prone to infection.
