Knowledge: The Best Medicine for Hepatitis

Hepatitis

Chances are you have heard of hepatitis, but you may not know what it is, how you get it and if there is a treatment available. The good news is not many people get it, but it can cause lasting damage to your body if you do get it.

Carol Peters is a nurse practitioner in the hepatology department at Banner – University Medical Center Tucson. She noted hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, and there are viral, drug-induced, autoimmune and alcoholic hepatitis.

In total, there are 6 forms of hepatitis: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hepatitis D, hepatitis E and hepatitis G. In the United States, most cases are of the A, B and C types. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest statistics show there were 8,192 cases of hepatitis reported in 2016.

According to Peters, both hepatitis B and hepatitis C can become chronic, which means they can last a long time and can cause scarring on the liver. Over time, both can also lead to cirrhosis of the liver.

Hepatitis Symptoms

As with many diseases, there are some signature symptoms you should be aware of. For hepatitis A, B and C, the following are some common symptoms:

  • Pain in the upper right of the abdomen
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Jaundice
  • Fatigue
  • Anorexia

“Many people have no symptoms or mild symptoms and do not know that they have become infected,” Peters said. “And, if Hep B and Hep C become chronic, most people have no symptoms or vague symptoms like fatigue.”

While it varies from person to person, symptoms can last for several weeks. Peters noted, in chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C, symptoms can last until treatment is started.  But again, many people do not have symptoms during the initial phase of the infections or during the chronic phase of the infections.

Peters also noted hepatitis A does not become chronic and people recover from the infection on their own.

How people get hepatitis

Now that you know what hepatitis is and its symptoms, you might be wondering how you can get it. With each of the three forms of hepatitis common in the United States, a person can become infected by different means.

Peters explained that hepatitis A is typically found in areas with poor sanitation and in developing countries.

“The U.S. has an outbreak a few times per year, it seems, when produce becomes contaminated,” Peters said.

Hepatitis B is typically found in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, according to Peters. It will spread from an infected mother to her fetus and will spread from person to person in areas of overcrowding, poor hygiene and sharing food in households and school settings.

Finally, hepatitis C spreads through blood transmission—for example, a blood transfusion or sharing needles with an infected person.

“It is also spread in developing countries through intravenous drug abuse, but also through health care and reusing poorly sterilized equipment,” Peters said.

Hepatitis treatments and vaccines

If you have a hepatitis infection, the treatment will depend on which strain you have.

With hepatitis A, no treatment is necessary, according to Peters. However, some people may need supportive care—IV fluids and anti-nausea medication. The biggest concern is the potential for liver failure in some patients.

There is also a vaccine available for hepatitis A, which is very effective.

When a patient has hepatitis B, doctors will prescribe oral anti-viral medications.

“These do not cure the virus,” Peters said. “They just suppress the replication of the virus and, therefore, prevent liver damage.”

The hepatitis B vaccine has proven to be very effective, and it has significantly reduced the transmission of the virus from mother to fetus, according to Peters.

Recently, new anti-viral medications have become available to help treat hepatitis C. These medications have been very effective, according to Peters, with cure rates higher than 95%. A course of treatment usually only takes 8 or 12 weeks, and people tolerate it very well.

“Unfortunately, they are very expensive and the cost has become a barrier for treatment for many people,” Peters said.

And, while research is underway, there is no vaccine currently available for hepatitis C.

    I was diagnosed with hepatitis B six years ago when I became pregnant with my first child. My husband got tested for the virus as well but the results turned out negative. I had no idea how or where I contracted that virus. I had no signs or symptoms before the test. Last year I was getting some burning sensations in both feet and insomnia. I have not had any medications. December 2017 our family doctor started me on Natural Herbal Clinic Hepatitis B Virus Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of insomnia, burning feet, or weakness. Visit Natural Herbal Robinsonbuckler@hotmail. co m. I am strong again and able to go about daily activities.‌ This Herbal Formula is Incredible!! My life is back.

    I had my first outbreak of oral herpes nearly 4 years ago. Of all the horribleness, the pain and itching were unbearable. I literally freaked out as my general physician said that it had no cure. The outbreaks were not that frequent initially, but every time I’d fall sick, it would resurface. I had so many sores this year that I was desperate to try anything to get rid of them. Three months ago a friend suggested that I should contact a herbal doctor from Africa, that he prepare herbal medicine for HSV-2/1. Diabetes 1 2. Fibroid, Cancer. Hepatitis B To cut the story short,He gave me some herbal healing medicinal and some herbs (and he thought me how am gonna use them all..At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a try..I was on his Medication for few days and i used all the herbal herpes cure. according to his prescription, I'm so relieved to say that I've not had even one outbreak for 5 month now. Moreover, I'm feeling great from within. I truly endorse Dr. Ekpen product, it really works. please i want everyone with this horrible illness to be cure remember together we fight to become healthy, that is why i will leave his contact info here so you can get cure better still you can call whatsapp him on +2349062286491Email:drekpenherbalisthome@gmail.comHe can also cure some other diseases likeHIV AND AIDS,DIABETES,CANCER,HPV,.HEPATITIS,AND MANY MORE.contact him on his via WhatsApp +2349062286491

    My name is Cyprienne glory , i was diagnosed with HIV in 2013, and since then my life was turned upside down. I even infected my husband with the virus, until i read a testimony from a woman about a healer who uses herbs to cure diseases like HIV, genital warts, herpes, Hepatitis, breast cancer , many more. And she dropped his email, which i used to contact him and told him about my problem, he assured me that he can heal me and told me all i need to do, after which he sent some herbal medicine to me in Montreal, where i was residing with my husband in Canada. He told i and my husband to take the medication for 3weeks which we did religiously. Now we are fully healed, we are now HIV negative. Even last week we went for a test again and it was all negative, thanks to the healer Dr'Wise for saving our life. And i will advice any of you who needed help about this deadly virus should contact Dr'Wise through his Whatsapp: +2349063191711 or his email address drwisehivhealinghome@gmail.com
