Hepatitis Testing

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. Toxins, certain drugs, some diseases, heavy alcohol use, and bacterial and viral infections can all cause hepatitis. Hepatitis is also the name of a family of viral infections that affect the liver; the most common types in the United States are hepatitis A, B, and C.

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that results from infection due to the Hep A virus. It can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. Hep A is usually spread when a person ingests fecal matter – even in microscopic amounts – from contact with objects, food, or drinks contaminated by the feces or stool of an infected person.

The best way to prevent Hep A is by getting vaccinated.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a contagious liver disease that results from infection due to the Hep B virus. It can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness. Hep B is usually spread when blood, semen, or another bodily fluid from an infected person enters the body of someone who is not infected. This can happen through sexual contact or sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment. It can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby at birth.

Hep B can be either acute or chronic. An acute Hep B virus infection is a short-term illness that occurs within the first 6 months after someone is exposed to the Hep B virus. Acute infection can (but not always) lead to chronic infection. Chronic Hep B is a long-term illness that occurs when the Hep B virus remains in a person’s body. It is a serious disease that can result in long-term health problems, even death.

The best way to prevent Hep B is by getting vaccinated.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a contagious liver disease that results from infection with the Hep C virus. It can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness. Hep C is usually spread when an infected person’s blood enters the body of someone who is not infected. Many people become infected by sharing needles or other equipment to inject drugs. Hep C can be either acute or chronic. An acute Hep C virus infection is a short-term illness that occurs within the first 6 months after someone is exposed to the Hep C virus. For many people, acute infection leads to chronic infection. Chronic Hep C is a serious disease than can result in long-term health problems or even death.

There is no vaccine for Hep C. The best way to prevent contracting it is by avoiding behaviors that can spread the disease, especially injection drug use.
