Hepatitis C

What is hepatitis C? It is a disease of the liver, which makes your liver swell and stops it from working right. You need a healthy liver. The liver fights infections and stops bleeding. It removes drugs and other poisons from your blood. The liver also stores energy for when you need it.

What causes hepatitis C? The virus that causes this viral infection is called the hepatitis C virus.

How can I get hepatitis C? The infection is spread by contact with an infected person's blood. You could get hepatitis C by sharing drug needles; getting pricked with a needle that has infected blood on it (hospital workers are most at risk for this); having sex with an infected person, especially if you or your partner has other sexually transmitted diseases; or by being born to a mother with hepatitis C.

Can I get hepatitis C from a blood transfusion? If you had a blood transfusion or organ transplant before 1992, you might have hepatitis C. Before 1992, doctors could not check blood for hepatitis C, and some people received infected blood. If you had a blood transfusion or organ transplant before 1992, ask a doctor to test you for hepatitis.

What are the symptoms of hepatitis C? Many people with this condition don't have symptoms. However, some people may feel like they have the flu; feel very tired; sick to your stomach; have a fever; do not want to eat; have stomach pain; or have diarrhea. Some people have dark yellow urine, light colored stools, or yellowish eyes and skin. If you have symptoms or think you might have any form of hepatitis -go to a doctor.

How is hepatitis C treated? Hepatitis C is treated with a drug called peginterferon, usually in combination with the drug ribavirin. You may need surgery if you have hepatitis C for many years. Over time, the condition can cause your liver to stop working. If that happens, you will need a liver transplant. At Buy Low Drugs you can find medications for just about any health condition you may have. Best of all, we offer great low prices and fast online ordering from a licensed Online Pharmacy.

Protection? You can protect yourself and others by not sharing drug needles with anyone; wearing gloves if you have to touch anyone's blood; use a condom during sex; don't use an infected person's toothbrush, razor, or anything else that could have blood on it; if you get a tattoo or body piercing, make sure it is done with clean tools; and if you have hepatitis C, don't give your blood or plasma. The person who receives it could become infected with the virus.
