Viral Hepatitis

Viral hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by one of the hepatitis viruses: A, B, C, D or E. The condition could be acute, in other words, short-lived, or chronic. Each of these liver diseases differs with respect to their repercussions, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and prognosis. In a high percentage of cases hepatitis virus infections do not produce any symptoms until they reach an advanced stage and therefore go totally unnoticed.

Viral Hepatitis explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
I would say to a patient diagnosed with hepatitis that, “we have very good medicines, which are always getting better. It is a disease that can be cured in certain cases and very well controlled in the others.”
