What is Hepatitis C and Why Should You Care?

What is Hepatitis C and Why Should You Care?


(gentle music)>>Hepatitis C is a major
problem in the United States, and really around the world.>>More people are dying of
hepatitis C in this country than of HIV.>>I think many people don’t
hear about what hepatitis C even is and how you can get it.>>So hepatitis C is just a virus. It doesn’t do a whole lot
other than want to live in your liver and make
more copies of itself. So the word hepatitis has to do with hepa, which is the liver, anything
having to do with the liver. Itis, which means irritated or diseased. And we know that they’re
different viruses that, once they’re in the body,
their homebase is the liver. The primary viruses we see in
this country are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.>>So anytime someone was
exposed to someone else’s blood, and that could happen through
blood transfusions before ’92, organ transplantation before
screening, people on dialysis, people with hemophilia, as well
as people who inject drugs. All were identified as
high risk populations, as were people living with HIV. Because many of the same
modes of transmission for HIV are also true for hepatitis C. Their immune system tries to fight it. And this battle goes on in a
very silent way in their liver for 10, 20, 30, 40 years. And it may also be causing other problems. Hepatitis C is linked to
things like the development of Type 2 diabetes, as well as
lymphomas and kidney disease. But what happens to some
people is over time, their livers scar leading to cirrhosis. But it’s only at that stage, when the liver can no longer function, that symptoms become obvious.>>When you’re having all that itching, that’s ’cause your liver was acting up.>>I had no symptoms. It didn’t affect anything
that I was doing, so I didn’t respond to it.>>And once you get cirrhosis,
your liver can stop working.>>And the idea is, if you
don’t know you have it, you can’t get the treatment. And you can’t be cured. (upbeat music) (gentle music)

    What is the treatment

  • Rommel Barrida says:

    Such an insidious disease.

  • Cynthia Crager says:

    This is a fairly educational and informative narrative. Don't forget that everyone who ever had an immunization with an airgun is at risk of having hcv. And also be aware that every rhogam mother until the mid-nineties is at risk of having hcv as well as any children that that mother had after having a rhogam shot made with someone else's blood. Please don't think that you're safe because you don't have any risk factors you have to know what the risk factors are to make those kind of decisions. Scotland and Canada already paid settlements to all their rhogam mothers Nationwide.

    Hepatitis c is what jevil caught

  • Charles Smith says:

    So here is the pathogenesis for Hep C…..
    1. First, Hep C resides in the liver and makes auto-duplicates of itself.
    2. Second, the immune cells in the liver, including WBCs, attack to try to kill off the Hep C cells, but cannot kill off all of them as the Hep C viral cells continue to mass-duplicate.
    3. The immune system then gets overwhelmed by the attempted kill-offs that additional immune cell mediators then attack the virus – including fibroblasts and macrophages, which are sadly, overwhelmed, and then attack the good liver cells and necrotize them, and this leads to an adverse damage effect where new immune mediators, including TNF-a and IL-6, create more and more scar tissue to try to repair the affected area where once live and good liver cells had resided. But this scar tissue causes choke-off in the affected area (hypoxia), causing liver function to suffer to start its process of progressive damage.
    4. The more scar tissue the liver develops after the Hep C virus kills a lot of the good liver cells, the higher the risk of cirrhosis if it is not treated in time.

    —-8 July, World Hepatitis Day (WHD) Final edited

    Every year on 28 July, World Hepatitis Day (WHD) is illustrating. It is mainly to aspire against the global danger of hepatitis more particularly viral Hepatitis as type B, with or without type C, D, E, and G, while type A is easily curable. WHD unites social organizations, governments, medical professionals, and the affected group and families to give better treatment as well as protection to the different types of viral hepatitis.

    History: Previously on October 1, 2004, International Hepatitis C Awareness day took place in Europe. Further, in 2008, the World Hepatitis Alliance in collaboration with patient groups declared May 19 the first global World Hepatitis Day.

    In May 2010, the World Health Assembly in their 63 congresses had taken a resolution. It is like, “28 July shall be designated as World Hepatitis Day in order to provide an opportunity for education and a greater understanding of viral hepatitis as a global public health problem, and to stimulate the strengthening of preventive and control measures of this disease in Member State.” This 28 July is the birthday of Noble Laureate Baruch Samuel Blumberg, the discoverer of the Hepatitis B virus.

    Mode of infection of Viral Hepatitis type A, B, C, D, E, and G.

    1. Type A: direct infection as the Faecal-oral route by contaminated food water, finger and feeding utensils.

    2. Type B: indirect infection as virus-contaminated blood transfusion, use of the contaminated needle, and shaving razors; through blood, urine, breast milk via abrasion of the skin and intrauterine.

    3. Type C: transmitted through blood-to-blood, men to women and visa verse.

    4. Type D: disease developed after infection of type B. It may transmit through blood and mucous membrane.

    5. Type E: transmitted by the fecal-oral route, contaminated sewage with water.

    6. Type G: as type C, i.e., transmitted through blood-to-blood, men to women and visa verse.

    Prevention: Prevention truly depends upon the maintenance of personal and public hygiene as well as follow-up of the proper medical guidelines. At the same time, early diagnosis, isolation and proper treatment of patient always help to control and eradication of all diseases including hepatitis.

    Importance: Viral hepatitis is a type of sporadic (scattered manifestation), as well as sub-acute (primarily may be asymptomatic for a long period) of infectious diseases. So, it is often a silent killer of millions of peoples. Currently, 90% of people are living with hepatitis B and 80% with hepatitis C (approximately 500 million people worldwide) without any awareness, with every possibility of transmitting the infection to others. Accounting statistics, about 1.34 million deaths happen per year – that is as many as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis or malaria. Together, hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C cause 80% of the carcinoma of the liver in the world.

    Modern discoveries are claiming the availability of effective vaccines and treatments for hepatitis B and a cure for hepatitis C. At the same time greater awareness and understanding of the disease is necessary, as it is easy to access the low-cost diagnostics and treatment.

    I found out on 25th September 2016 that I am a carrier of the hepatitis B virus. I am from South Australia and was on a scholarship studying in Canada when I found out through medical test to extent my visa. The university asked me to go back home for treatment. Now I am at home and the doctor says my liver is affected and viral load is high and am at risk, so I require medication and stated there is no cure or medication. I and my family are devastated by this news. I hope I can get back to my studies as the scholarship gave me 12 months to get better. I hope that one day there will be a cure for this disease. But God send this healer to me a Dr from health med lab Clinic who i was directed to by a family friend, the Dr deliver the medicine to me and with guideline on how to use it after a period of 2 Months i went for test i was totally negative, please my advice is for you to contact him if you are passing through this today here is their private email address [email protected]
