Today is the world day against hepatitis. A separate day for this disease singled out because of viruses that trigger the liver, the infected one in ten people, and some form of hepatitis (primary viruses — five) had every third Earthling! When this virus is often discovered accidentally when a patient comes with complaints of diseases of other organs, although the “explosives” laid in the liver. And often hepatitis is diagnosed when the virus has seriously damaged the liver, and its tissue is pathologically expanded.
Sadly, the number of people that picks hepatic “killers”, alas, is growing steadily. The reason is the carelessness of the majority, confident that “we well never replenish disappointing statistics”. Although actually at risk, almost every Ukrainian, because of transmission of viruses is not only a direct blood transfusion and sexually promiscuous. This was established in response to the hepatitis Day — in order to encourage people to prevent disease. After all, it is very, very simple.
Experts of the world health organization hope that by 2030 the incidence of hepatitis is stopped, people will finally understand that to prevent illness is much easier and cheaper than a painful treatment and recover.
To prevent the development of hepatitis, seek to rest and eat right
In Ukraine most common are hepatitis A, b and C. We’ll talk about the last two because the first does not cause liver damage for years, was infected with the symptoms quickly manifested on the face (yellowed whites of the eyes), treated and forget about the illness forever. But viruses b and C, if you omit the acute phase of infection, cause chronic disease. And suspicious people who do not have medical education, can not always. Indeed, despite the severity of the process, disease symptoms similar to SARS and is most often seen in a greased form. Lose the body years, until results in hepatitis, and often in diseases of other organs: a person diligently and unsuccessfully fighting them, until one day on the ultrasound and not detected by liver fibrosis.
Full izlechennosti hepatitis b occurs in approximately 80% of cases. But the disease can be almost guaranteed to be avoided if a vaccination is its efficiency reaches 97%!
The vaccine for hepatitis C today, alas, does not exist. Although therapy for this disease is effective overall, but if the disease started (developed cirrhosis or cancer) is to achieve recovery will not be easy.

“That’s why it is so important in the prevention of the disease and such a banal, but effective way to not miss the disease and prevent its transition to severe form, as an annual survey from various specialized doctors, delivery of basic blood and urine tests, ultrasound examination, — says Tatiana Egorova, chief freelance infectious disease of Kiev. — At suspicion on disease of viral hepatitis, the doctor will be sent for consultation to the infectious disease, and that Doubleday of the patient. Please note that not the last role in the fact that the infection will lead to a massive defeat, plays the human immune system. Because it is so important to support the body’s defenses at a proper level. To do this follow the rule of three “P’s”: peace — the absence of physical congestion, it should be balanced, without rivers mayonnaise, mountains of biscuits, cakes and fast food, and psychological rest — try to all situations to react exactly.”
WAYS OF INFECTION
- AT THE GYNECOLOGIST, UROLOGIST, DENTIST, BEAUTICIAN, HAIRDRESSER
Even in the best clinic or salon can happen force majeure kind of unplanned blackouts that disrupt the perfection of the process of sterilization of the reusable tool. A person can be infected with hepatitis b virus, without knowing it. It is therefore very important to make sure that the doctor spent manipulations with gloves and used syringes. And for the manicure/pedicure itself can bring its own set of tools.
- USING OTHER PEOPLE’S HYGIENE

Besides, at the moment of contact on your arm also needs to be a bloody wound, and the syringe I’m going to stab you in the leg.
- MEDICATION BASED ON BLOOD
Platelet or erythrocyte mass, plasma, albumin and a number of such medicines are made on the basis of donor blood. Of course, about the absence of the virus analysis can show, for example, when violated its methodology, check test systems are not the best quality or before the test were not met the conditions of the storage system because the human factor has not been canceled. But despite this, the probability of error is very low: the blood test is carried out in several stages and, therefore, its reliability is close to 100%.
- ORAL SEX AND KISSING
First, the dose of virus in saliva is extremely low. Second, and in that and in other case partners, while at the same time both must be wound/crack on the genitals and bleeding sores on the gums. The probability of such coincidence is definitely there but very low.
