What is Hepatitis C

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 01/09/2019

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that can cause serious liver damage. It's important to get tested for hepatitis C if you have any risk factors, such as sharing needles or having unprotected sex. There is no cure for hepatitis C, but it can be treated with medication. Left untreated, hepatitis C can lead to cirrhosis or liver cancer.

If you have hepatitis C, it's important to see a doctor regularly and get your liver checked. You should also avoid drinking alcohol and taking certain medications that can damage the liver. With proper care, hepatitis C can be managed effectively.

Hepatitis is "the silent killer" because it often has no symptoms until it's too late. That's why it's important to get tested if you think you may have hepatitis C. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to preventing serious liver damage.
