What is Hepatitis C?
Hepatitis C (or hep C) is a viral infection, transmitted through exposure to infected blood, that can result in severe liver damage. Hep C infection can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term).
Many times, hep C does not present any symptoms until the virus starts to affect the liver. When individuals do experience symptoms, they can include fatigue, fever, abdominal pain, nausea, decreased appetite, and jaundice (when the skin and the whites of the eyes take on a yellowish hue).
How Is Hepatitis C Treated?
The goals of hepatitis C treatment are to:
- Cure the individual of the hepatitis C infection
- Prevent acute hep C from developing into chronic hep C
- Prevent cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver and liver cancer
Treatment for hepatitis C includes antiviral medications, rest, avoiding alcohol, and eating a nutritious diet.
Why Is it Important to Adhere to Hepatitis C Treatment?
If not treated properly, or if left untreated, hepatitis C may lead to health complications, like:
- Cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver
- Liver cancer
