Hepatitis (B or C)

Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are both infectious diseases of the liver, which if not detected early can become chronic. Chronic infection can lead to severe liver damage, liver cancer, cirrhosis or liver failure. Symptoms of acute Hepatitis C include dark urine, jaundice, abdominal pain, fatigue, nausea and loss of appetite. These symptoms can appear six to 12 weeks after exposure, if at all. The symptoms of acute Hepatitis B are the same as those of Hepatitis C, in addition to joint pain and fever. If symptoms appear, it is usually three months after exposure to the virus and can last up to six months.
The Hepatitis B virus is transmitted through certain bodily fluids and can be contracted through sexual intercourse with an infected person, the sharing of needles, contact with blood infected with Hepatitis B, or from mother to child during child birth. The most common form of transmission of Hepatitis C is needle-sharing; however, it is rarely passed from mother to child or through sexual intercourse.
