What is Hepatitis C?
Hepatitis C is a disease caused by a virus that infects the liver. Infections can lead to the inflammation of the liver and cause the immune system to respond by attaching healthy liver cells. Hep C can be spread through blood contact when the blood of a person with hep C makes contact with another person’s blood. Hepatitis C can be a dormant disease that is silent. This means that people can have it but not experience noticeable symptoms. However, some patients can experience mild to severe symptoms shortly after being infected.
Care for Patients with Hepatitis C
The liver plays a critical role in the body including fighting infections, cleaning the blood, and storing energy. Since Hepatitis C is caused by a virus, it is essential to treat this condition as soon as possible in order to avoid permanent liver damage. Some people with this form of hepatitis may never experience symptoms, but those who do may experience symptoms including:
- Joint pain
- Stomach pain
- Itchy skin
- Muscle soreness
- Dark urine
- And more
