    Hepatitis and Liver Function

    The liver plays a very important role your body. Its main job is to filter the blood flowing from the digestive tract before transferring it to rest of the body. The liver is responsible for storing energy from food, producing proteins and breaking down and removing toxins from the body. It also produces bile, which is a fluid that aids in the digestion process. When the liver is inflamed, it may interfere with these processes which could cause toxins to build-up in the body.

    Liver damage or disease can be caused by the Hepatitis A, B, or C virus, as well as excessive drug or alcohol use, obesity and allergic reactions, hereditary diseases and autoimmune diseases. Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Depending on the virus, the inflammation can be brief and severe (acute) or develops and worsens over time (chronic). Symptoms of chronic hepatitis can progress to severe liver damage involving cirrhosis, cancer or even death.

    In the United States, the most common causes of viral Hepatitis are hepatitis A, B and C viruses. Some symptoms associated in the acute stages may include abdominal pain, gray bowel movements, fatigue, fever, jaundice, joint pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting.
    Hepatitis A is the most common form of viral hepatitis. It is transmitted through the ingestion of fecal matter, sexual contact or sharing food or drink with someone who has the virus.

    Hepatitis B is transmitted from person to person through bodily fluids such as blood or semen. It is more severe than Hepatitis A, causing chronic illness and permanent liver damage when left untreated.

    Hepatitis C is transmitted through blood only by sharing contaminated needles or drug equipment or through a blood transfusion. Most people who have HCV show no symptoms and usually don’t find they have HCV until they get a routine checkup and liver damage is shown.
    The only way to prevent serious liver damage from occurring is early detection. Get tested for hepatitis today!
