Hepatitis C

What is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a virus that leads to an infection in the liver. It can result
in lifelong liver disease if not treated.



What are the symptoms?

Most people do not have symptoms. If you do, they can include stomach pain,
fever, nausea and vomiting, feeling tired and loss of appetite.

If left untreated, Hepatitis C can lead to liver cancer, liver failure or
scarring of the liver (cirrhosis).

You only need a simple blood test to determine if you have Hepatitis C.
Treatment of this virus has come a long way recently. More and more people
are being cured with the new medications now available.
