A number of diseases can affect the liver such as acute and chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and tumors. The underlying causes of these disease states include viral infections like hepatitis A, B and C alcohol, by long-term overuse of drugs or other toxins (poisons), metabolic disorders and immunological factors.
Although there are several different types of hepatitis, hepatitis B is a type that can move from one person to another through blood and other bodily fluids. It can be transmitted through sexual intercourse and through needles — such as those shared by intravenous drug or steroid users who have the virus, or tattoo needles that haven’t been properly sterilized. A pregnant woman can also pass hepatitis B to her unborn baby. You cannot catch hepatitis B from an object, such as a toilet seat.
What Are the Symptoms?

- · tiredness,-feel tired
- · nausea and vomiting
- · pain underneath the right ribcage where the liver is.
- · feel sick to your stomach

Hepatitis B can also cause jaundice,

- · light-colored stools
- · yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes (yellowish eyes )
How Long Until Symptoms Appear?
Someone who has been exposed to hepatitis B may have symptoms 1 to 4 months later. Some people with hepatitis B don’t notice symptoms until they become quite severe. Some have few or no symptoms, but even someone who doesn’t notice any symptoms can still transmit the disease to others. Some people carry the virus in their bodies and are contagious for the rest of their lives.
What Can Happen?
Hepatitis B can be very dangerous to a person’s health, leading to liver damage and an increased risk of liver cancer. Of babies born to women who have the hepatitis B virus, 90% will have the virus unless they receive a special immune injection and the first dose of hepatitis B vaccine at birth.
How Is It Prevented?
Hepatitis infection can be serious, but knowing what puts you at risk can help protect you.Because hepatitis B can easily be transmitted through blood and most body fluids, it can be prevented by:
- · abstaining from sex (not having oral, vaginal, or anal sex -all types of sexual intercourse)
- · health care wear gloves at all times . be sure avoiding contact with an infected person’s blood
- · not using intravenous drugs or sharing any drug paraphernalia
- · not sharing things like toothbrushes or razors
- · Avoid eating raw shellfish (such as clams or oysters).
- You could put yourself at risk for hepatitis A if the shellfish was harvested from contaminated water.
- · If you are thinking about getting a piercing, be sure the shop sterilizes needles properly.
- Poorly sterilized or nonsterile needles put people at risk for hepatitis B or C.
For this reason, it’s especially important to see a doctor quickly after any possible exposure to the virus.
If you think you may have hepatitis B or if you have been intimate with someone who may have hepatitis B, you need to see your doctor or gynecologist, who will do blood tests. Let the doctor know the best way to reach you confidentially with any test results.
If your doctor diagnoses hepatitis B, you may get medicines to help fight it. Sometimes, people need to be hospitalized for a little while if they are too sick to eat or drink. Most people with hepatitis B feel better within 6 months.
