About Hepatitis C:
Hepatitis C is a serious liver infection and is spread from person to person by contact with blood. It is typically a chronic disease and can be a contributor to liver failure or needing a liver transplant.
Signs & Symptoms:
There are often no early warning signs of hepatitis C and is only diagnosed after the patient has had it for a while. However, flu-like symptoms are the most common signs and include mild fatigue, joint aches, nausea, lack of appetite, and/or tenderness around the liver.
Hepatitis C is spread through contact with the blood of someone who does have it. It can be spread through needles used for tattooing or body piercings. It’s important to always ensure that any needle that comes in contact with your skin has been thoroughly sterilized and is clean. Individuals who have Hepatitis C should aim to lead a healthy lifestyle, including proper diet and exercise.
