Types of Hepatitis – In this article I explain about the types of hepatitis chart, symptoms of hepatitis, how many types of hepatitis are there, types of hepatitis and symptoms,.
What is hepatitis? What is hepatitis can strike every human being and how causes? those questions are very important to answer because the answer will be demonstrated to us of the importance of the liver in humans.
The term “hepatitis” itself is used for all types of inflammation of the liver (liver). The causes can be varied, ranging from viruses to drugs, including traditional medicine. Hepatitis viruses there are also several types of hepatitis, hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, F and g. manifestation of the disease hepatitis caused by viruses can be acute (hepatitis A), can be chronic (hepatitis B and C) and could also then become cancerous liver (hepatitis B and C).
The Virus that causes the disease is in human body fluids at any time can be transmitted to another person. Indeed most people infected with this virus can be cured by itself, however this virus will remain in the body for a lifetime.
The disease is transmitted through bodily fluids, such as through sexual intercourse, syringe, and blood transfusions. In General, the current blood transfusions was safe: the blood that will be given diskrining hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. Thus the possibility of transmission of Hepatitis and HIV through blood transfusion has become small.
Often the infection of hepatitis A in children do not cause symptoms, whereas in adults causes symptoms similar to the flu, a sense of fatigue, fever, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, yellow eyes and loss of appetite. The symptoms disappear entirely after 6-12 weeks. People who are infected with hepatitis A are immune to the disease. Unlike hepatitis B and C infection hepatitis A does not continue to chronic hepatitis.
Hepatitis B is an inflammation of the liver. In addition to type A hepatitis B, a virus most often is found. Most hepatitis B sufferers will recover completely and have lifelong immunity, but some failed to get immunity. That person will continue to carry the hepatitis B virus and could be a source of transmission. Transmission may occur through a syringe or contaminated knife, blood transfusion and human bites. Hepatitis B is highly risky for narcotics addicts and people who have many sexual partners.
The symptoms of hepatitis B is weak, lethargic, sore muscles, low-grade fever, nausea, lack of appetite, yellow skin and eyes, and dark colored urine.
Treatment of this disease is done with interferon alfa-2b and lamivudine, imunoglobulin containing antibodies against hepatitis-B (given 14 days after exposure). Hepatitis B vaccine safe and effective has been available since a couple of years ago.
Hepatitis C is an infectious disease that can go undetected in a person for decades slowly destroying the liver organ (lever). The disease is now emerging as one of the major health care issues in the United States, both in terms of loss of life and stress on the economy. In Indonesia, Hepatitis C is still less notable than with Hepatitis b. patients though, pretty much.
Typically those who suffer from the disease hepatitis C are unaware that he contracted the disease, because there is no specific symptoms. In fact some people think if they just got the flu. The usual symptoms include fever they feel, a sense of fatigue, vomiting, headaches, stomach pains or loss of appetite.
Hepatitis D Virus (HDV) or delta virus is a virus that is unique, which is not complete and for replication requires the presence of hepatitis B virus Transmission through sexual intercourse., syringes and blood transfusions. Hepatitis D symptoms of the disease vary, the symptoms can appear as lighter (ko-infection) or very progressive.
Symptoms similar to hepatitis A, some of the traditional fever rheumatic pain, tired, lost of appetite and abdominal pain. The disease will be cured themselves (self-limited), except for when it occurs in the third trimester of pregnancy, in particular, can be deadly. Transmission through water contaminated feces.
There are very few new cases being reported. This time the experts haven’t agreed hepatitis F is a separate hepatitis diseases.
Similar symptoms of hepatitis C infection, often simultaneously with hepatitis B and/or c. not cause hepatitis or chronic hepatitis fulminan. Transmission through blood transfusion syringes.
