Let's have health and medical talks ... I am sure you’ve heard of Hepatitis A and B but did you know that there is another one identified as Hepatitis C?
Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes liver inflammation, sometimes leading to serious liver damage. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) spreads through contaminated blood.
The Hepatitis C virus can cause permanent liver damage. Most of the time, this leads to liver cancer.
There is a Cure for Hepatitis C ! Find Out Through HepCured.
Hepatitis C is spread through contact with the blood of an infected person. The hepatitis C virus is not spread by sweat, tears, or urine. You cannot get it through casual contact, food, water, sneezing, coughing, or breathing air.
The most common way people get hepatitis C is by sharing needles. Tattoos and body piercings done with contaminated needles can spread hepatitis C. Sharing razors, nail clippers, and toothbrushes may also spread the virus. There is a small risk of transmission during sex.
About 80 percent of the people who are infected with hepatitis C are unable to clear the virus from their bodies, becoming hepatitis C carriers. As long as the virus is in the body, it can be passed to other people. It can take as long as 20 years for symptoms of liver disease to appear. A special blood test for hepatitis C is the only way to tell if you have it.
While there are vaccinations against hepatitis A and hepatitis B, there is no vaccine to prevent infection with Hepatitis C. Good news is, there is a cure for Hepatitis C! But very few people know about it.
