What is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C infection is a contagious liver disease caused by a virus. It is the most common chronic blood borne infection in the United States. Hepatitis C is poorly transmitted sexually, and more commonly transmitted by injection drug use, history of blood transfusion, tattoos, or being born to an infected mother.


Who is at risk?

  • Injection drug users
  • Persons who live in correctional facilities
  • Persons who have been diagnosed with other STDs such as HIV
  • Health care workers who may be exposed to blood or bodily fluids
  • Persons born between 1945-1965
  • Persons who received blood transfusion or organ transplant before 1992
  • Sexual exposures can result in transmission of HCV, although much less frequent

What are the signs and symptoms?

New or acute Hepatitis C infection may or may not have symptoms. If symptoms do appear, they usually occur 2-24 weeks after exposure. Symptoms of acute Hepatitis C may include:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and/or Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dark Urine and/or clay-colored bowel movements
  • Joint pain
  • Jaundice (yellow color in the eyes or skin)

Most persons with chronic Hepatitis C infection have no symptoms. However, it is possible for chronic Hepatitis C infection to progress to cirrhosis and liver cancer.


Testing

Hepatitis C can be tested with a simple blood test. The initial blood test looks for the presence of Hepatitis C antibodies. Further testing should be done if antibodies are present to determine what treatment should be provided. HCV can be detected 4-10 weeks after infection with antibody testing, although may take up to 3-6 months to detect. There is a test that can detect as early as 2-3 weeks after infection called HCV RNA. This test is more costly than the Hepatitis C antibody test.

Everyone born between the years 1945-1965 should be tested due to a higher risk of transmission during that period.


Treatment

Hepatitis C treatment should be managed by a health care specialist such as an infectious disease physician, gastroenterologist, or hepatologist (liver specialist). New treatments are in the process of development. Currently treatment is a combination of medications that suppress the virus and attempt to decrease the amount of the virus in the body.

Important care should be taken including avoiding alcohol and checking with a health care professional before taking any new supplements or medications.


Prevention

It is important that patients with Hepatitis C be vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B to prevent further complications.

Patients with HCV infection should not donate blood, organs, or tissues. They should also not share razors or toothbrushes. It is important to notify sex partners to be tested and treated if needed.
