Hepatitis C | Nucleus Health


If you have Hepatitis
C, your liver is inflamed because
you have been infected with the
Hepatitis C virus. Your liver is the largest
organ inside your body and performs many
important functions. The functional
parts of your liver are called hepatic lobules. Your hepatic lobules filter
all of the blood in your body. As your blood
passes through them, your hepatic lobules
breakdown harmful substances, remove bacteria and
worn out blood cells, and form clotting factors
that control bleeding. After a meal, your
liver makes and stores nutrients to provide your
body with energy when needed. Your liver also makes a
substance called bile. Your gall bladder
stores the bile and releases it into
your small intestine to help digest fats
in the food you eat. If you have Hepatitis
C, the virus entered your body
when you were exposed to the blood or
other body fluids from a person infected
with the virus. This could have happened
from sharing a drug syringe with an infected person. Other ways you may have been
exposed to the virus include: having sex with someone
infected by the virus; sharing personal hygiene items,
such as razors or toothbrushes, used by an infected person;
direct contact with the blood or body fluids of
an infected person; or when a mother passes it
to her baby during birth. During the early, or acute
phase, of a Hepatitis C infection, the Hepatitis
C virus enters your liver and invades your liver cells. Once inside your
liver cells, the virus begins to make copies of itself. During the copying
process, changes called mutations
occur frequently in the virus’ genetic
material, leading to new strains of the virus. In response to the
viral infection, your body sends immune
cells to attack both a virus and the liver cells
infected with the virus. As a result, these liver cells
become inflamed and then die. Over time, scar tissue forms
around dead and infected liver cells. The scar tissue prevents your
liver from working properly. If you have a chronic
Hepatitis C infection, your liver contains a large
amount of scar tissue, called cirrhosis, which
limits blood flow and results in permanent shrinking and
hardening of your liver. A vaccine contains weakend,
or inactive, viruses that train your immune system
to recognize and attack certain viruses. However, frequent mutations
in the Hepatitis C virus make it likely
that you will catch a version of the virus not
contained in a vaccine. As a result, there is
no effective vaccine for the Hepatitis C virus. If you have Hepatitis
C, your immune system alone may destroy all
of the Hepatitis C virus is in your body. However, most people
infected with the virus develop chronic
Hepatitis C, a condition in which your
immune system is not able to destroy all of
the viruses in your body after six months. If you have chronic Hepatitis
C and your immune system can’t get rid of the
virus completely, your doctor may prescribe a
combination therapy consisting of an anti-viral medication
called Ribavirin, and injections of
Interferon, a medication that strengthens your immune system. These drugs are most
effective against Hepatitis C when taken together. If you have a severe case
of chronic Hepatitis C, your doctor may recommend a
liver transplant operation.

  1. iam still dont get it between hepatitis B and C.
    both disease are caused by virus then destroyed liver cells. And if a chronic condition, a person must have liver transplant operation..

    where's the difference?

  2. It's like this is the same video where they explain hepatitis A and hepatitis B, I don't see the difference in how they affect the liver, they all seem to have identical effects, what am I not understanding? I've seen both videos they're the same, frame by frame, please someone help.

  3. Umm some of the information here is not either explained very well and therefore is misleading and kind of incorrect. Like the transmission is only blood to blood it is not like hep B and HIV where it is also transmitted through bodily fluids, Hep C is only a blood borne Virus. according to WHO "HCV can also be transmitted sexually and can be passed from an infected mother to her baby; however these modes of transmission are much less common." In Australia at least 80% of people infected with hep C have reported previous use of injecting drugs. I'm not sure of the world percentage but I know that it is most common amongst those who have injected drugs as it is a blood borne virus meaning that the blood of an infected person has to enter your bloodstream to become infected and even then it is not guaranteed that you will have contracted hep C, but a high possibility. Even so a percentage of those will get rid of the virus themselves within the first 6 months.

  4. my mother has hep B and I have hep c. I am not sexually active and I do not use needles. what can I do? I'm overcoming mild depression. any reply would help thanks.

  5. 4:02 you have to change that part you saying "ribavirin and PEG-Inf are most effective drugs againist the virus".
    now we can cure the disease with more success rates by the new drugs such as sofosbuvir, ledipasvir, ombitasvir, dasabuvir and many others.
    And great video, congratulations and respect..

  6. People do not drink beer alcohol burns destroy the liver causing Hepatitis C. My father had hepatitis C and he cured himself in 4 months. He went to the GNC or Nutrition Store. He bought Milk thistle he took once a day. Milk thistle repair the liver. And he drank Colon cleanse powder. One spoon with juice. The doctor said what did you do well i got the remedy from a friend. My father stop drinking beer when four of his friends ended up in the hospital and was waiting for a liver transplant. And sadly they died so my father say no more beer there other great stuff to drink like tea and raspberry ice tea.

  7. Thank you for sharing this! Updates! There are legitimate caring professionals assisting patients with HepC accessible at the website FixHepC. There is another website GP2U that is a virtual physician site that can assist with diagnosis and treatment. The medications, Direct Acting Antivirals (DAAs) for certain genotypes can be acquired for less than $2000. The 12 weeks therapy has a 90% positive outcome with minimal side effects. Good luck to all!

  8. My mother have this vairas and she is so sike.I am in Bangladesh hear is no treatment . If anybody know this treatment than infrim me.my nam:01516-737762

  9. HELLO. hep c. was caused by asshole liberals giving bleach to addicts for needle cleaning. Lets just call it. HEP Clorox i smell a law suit here..a retarded surgeon general…

  10. Very informative. I learned a lot. My mother had Hep C when she gave birth to me, luckily I wasn't infected. She's been on medication for years and is somewhat healthy today. But I'm wondering if Hep C has any other affect on the body besides the liver? She's had problems with her thyroid, gums and other parts of her body, including two strokes. Hep C related?

  11. I was one of the lucky ones. I got stuck with a dirty needle at work. I got night sweats for a few months and after six months I was told I had the anibodies to hep C. I was never told to go on drug treatment. Five year later I was told I was very lucky. There was nothing found in my RNA Test.

  22. You know i though Hep was really really bad but now i am less afraid of having it since it doesn't look that bad if i get the right attention. Anyway my mom isn't an anti vaxer so im safe 😀

  23. Piper , first of all is not a death sentence. For one reason, as a Service Provider/ Coordinator I've helped individuals get cured from HCV(Hepatitis C0 and live a happier and healthier lifestyle. So don't be ignorant. Education on STI/HIV/AIDS and Hep C is most important to better understand the benefits of HCV Treatment outweighs the cons of any Treatment. PERIOD

  24. For those who doesn"t know about how it is transmission whether it is HIVAIDS, Hep A,B ,or C even STI's get educated before passing judgement. Stigma at any cost of others is horrible and downgrading.
