Hepatitis – an inflammation of the liver. There are several types of the disease. The Most cases of hepatitis B virus is the causative agent. At the same time disease can develop as a result of common reactions to Some drugs are for him toxins or allergens. Such reactions may arise for a variety of chemicals, such as metal compounds, solvents or alcohol. In hepatitis occur swelling, inflammation and death of liver cells. K Fortunately, a healthy liver, do not suffer from the previously harmful Deplete effects or disease, it retains the ability to reproduce cells and replacement of necrotic tissue a new one. Sometimes, the liver can not independently fight infection, and hepatitis B virus then stays there for a viable condition over a long time and even lifelong human. Such people are called hepatitis B virus carriers. They may detected or no symptoms. Irrespective of this carriers of the virus continue to be a source of infection to others. In some of them may develop chronic hepatitis, characterized progressive and steady destruction of the liver. Carriers of hepatitis B virus and persons with chronic hepatitis B are at greater risk of developing cancer or cirrhosis. The functions of the liver include cleavage and neutralizing drugs and other chemicals entering the bloodstream. The liver cleanses and releases blood of harmful substances and impurities. In the liver, forming a plurality of proteins and blood clotting factors. Due to the liver supports the need blood sugar and blood lipids and the formation of bile. All of the above function in hepatitis may be violated. Accordingly, drugs appoint patients very carefully. In the course of treatment is carried out constant monitoring the state of the liver in order to prevent serious violations of its functions
– The kind that can cause unexpected bleeding, change level sugar in the blood or formation of toxic products. Severe violations the liver can result in coma and death. Regardless of the reason, some cause disease symptoms in all types hepatitis same. These general manifestations of the disease include loss of appetite, the symptoms observed in flu: headache, fever, fatigue, nausea and vomiting. Some people celebrated painting skin covers in yellow (jaundice). Jaundice is accompanied by the release of dark urine and discolored stools, pain in the upper right abdomen, pain in the joints and rash. Many people have hepatitis are asymptomatic or symptoms are It expressed so insignificant that these people are not aware of this at disease.
Hepatitis A, also known as infectious hepatitis or infectious hepatitis, caused by a virus of hepatitis A. The virus is spread through contaminated food and water, and through direct contact with infected body fluids basically because of improper sanitation (poorly washed hands etc.). Violent outbursts infections occur among children and young people in public places – in schools and other institutions. The patient feels the heat of hepatitis A, nausea, he has come a poor appetite, pain abdominal and muscle pain, headache, fatigue, jaundice. Elementary symptoms usually marked 30 days after the introduction of the virus in organism. However, the virus is found in the feces of infected persons within 2
weeks prior to the development of jaundice – obvious symptoms of liver damage. The period of the disease, when people do not know they’re infected is the most dangerous in terms of the transmission of infection to others. Hepatitis A is rarely It is death, and the disease usually occurs without long-term complications. Hepatitis A leads to chronic hepatitis, or liver cancer.
Hepatitis B is caused by hepatitis B. The disease is often referred to as serum hepatitis, because earlier believed that it extends Only through infected blood. It is now known that infection can occur through other body fluids such as saliva, semen, fluid released by the cervix. For this reason, hepatitis B and is classified as a disease, sexually transmitted. Newborns may be infected with a virus Hepatitis B through the placenta of the mother. Hepatitis B usually develops very slowly. Symptoms appear Only a few months later. Hepatitis B affects the liver, causing inflammation and its
dysfunction. Sometimes the infection appears so weak that it is not recognized as disease. The most common symptoms – jaundice, malaise, stomach pains, rash, which is sometimes accompanied by itching. While most people recover from this form of hepatitis without proof damage to the liver, about one in 10 people will develop chronic
hepatitis, or it becomes a carrier of the virus. Hepatitis B can be fatal outcome if it acquires the character of a lightning current, and when switching to chronic – cause the development of cirrhosis. The causative agent of hepatitis C is one of several viruses hepatitis C. Currently, the appearance of this type of disease is most often associated with transfusion of infected krovi.Simptomy usually appear after 50 days after infection. People infected with these viruses are highly susceptible to the danger development of irreversible liver damage (cirrhosis) or cancer. Some of them become carriers of the virus. Relatively successful is the treatment interferon, which eliminates a number of other viruses
