Hepatitis C

  • Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes inflammation of the liver. 

  • It is caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). 

  • HCV is a bloodborne virus, meaning that it can be spread through contact with infected blood. 

  • This can happen through sharing needles, having unprotected sex with an infected person, or receiving an infected blood transfusion or organ transplant.

  • Hepatitis C can be acute or chronic

  • Acute hepatitis C is a short-term infection that usually goes away on its own within a few months. 

  • Chronic hepatitis C is a long-term infection that can last for decades. 

  • Chronic hepatitis C can lead to serious liver problems, including cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and liver cancer.

  • There is no vaccine for hepatitis C, but there are effective treatments available. 

  • Treatment for hepatitis C typically involves taking antiviral medications for several months.

  • Symptoms of hepatitis C can vary depending on whether the infection is acute or chronic. 

  • Hepatitis C can be diagnosed with a simple blood test.
