Hello steemian friends wherever you are, meet again with me @iqbal-pasee, one of the atomians member in Indonesia.
On this occasion I will discuss about the types of hepatitis
Based on its nature, there are two types of hepatitis, namely acute and chronic hepatitis.
Hepatitis only lasts for a few weeks or months, whereas chronic hepatitis can last for six months or more.
Based on the cause, there are viral hepatitis and non-viral hepatitis.
Non-viral hepatitis is caused by other than viruses, while viral hepatitis is caused by viral infections, namely hepatitis A virus, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, hepatitis D virus and hepatitis E virus.
Each virus will cause a different hepatitis. For example, hepatitis A virus (HAV) causes hepatitis A, hepatitis B virus (HBV) causes hepatitis B and so on.
Of all hepatitis cases, 90% are caused by HAV, HBV and HCV.
Hepatitis A and E are acute hepatitis, can be cured completely and do not cause carrier conditions or carry the potential for disease.
The difference is that hepatitis E is more dangerous, especially when it occurs in pregnant women, because it can cause death.
Hepatitis B and C are hepatitis that have the potential to become chronic and carrier hepatitis.
The difference is, most hepatitis B can still be cured, but most hepatitis C will develop into chronic.
While hepatitis D is a unique type of hepatitis, in order to develop the hepatitis D virus requires infection from the hepatitis B virus.
"Remember prevention is much better than cure
So much information from me about the types of hepatitis, hopefully it will be useful and look forward to the next tips in my post.
Thank you for dropping by at my writing. Until we meet again in my next writing.
