May is Hepatitis Awareness Month. Let's talk a little about the ABCs of Hepatitis.
Hepatitis A, B & C each cause infection or disease in the liver. There are vaccines to prevent Hepatitis A & B, typically recommended before one year of age or for adults at risk. While there is no vaccine for Hepatitis C, there are treatments available that can cure chronic Hep C infections.
Each of these forms of Hepatitis is very contagious, but Hepatitis C often causes no symptoms. This means testing is extremely important to reduce the spread of Hepatitis C.
