GI & Liver Disorder #1 Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is a virus that causes liver disease and inflammation of the liver. It is one of the most common types of hepatitis, and is spread through contact with contaminated food or water, or through close contact with someone who is infected. Symptoms of hepatitis A include fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes). Hepatitis A can be serious, and even deadly, but most people recover completely with no long-term effects.

There’s a vaccine available to prevent hepatitis A, and it is recommended for all children and adults who are at risk for the disease.

GI & Liver Disorder # 2 Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a serious viral infection of the liver. It can cause long-term health problems, including liver damage, cirrhosis, liver cancer, and even death. Unlike hepatitis A, the virus is spread through contact with blood or other bodily fluids from an infected person. Anyone can get hepatitis B, but it is most commonly seen in people who have risk factors such as sharing needles or other drug-injection equipment, having unprotected sex with an infected partner, or being born to a mother with the virus.

Hepatitis B is a preventable disease through vaccination.

GI & Liver Disorder # 3 Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a serious infection of the liver that can cause serious health problems. It is caused by the hepatitis C virus, which is a blood-borne virus. Hepatitis C is a chronic infection, which means that it can last for years, and can sometimes lead to liver failure. There are treatments that can help to control the virus and improve the health of your patients, but they are very expensive and not accessible to some people due to price.

Make sure to watch the YouTube video for in-depth teaching on each hepatitis virus including transmission, signs and symptoms, and treatment.

There are three videos in this series, so make sure to watch all three!
