Signs of hepatitis and its social conditions
Hepatitis is an acute or chronic inflammationliver tissue of different etiology. Before the world society, it became necessary to actively combat the rapid spread of this pathology. The main cause of mass diseases is the human factor. Namely, lack of moral foundations, low level of hygiene and weak awareness of people about the ways of infection, methods of treatment and prevention of disease. This gap must be filled for everyone.
General signs of hepatitis virus form
The term "hepatitis" combines several typesinfectious and noninfectious damage to the body, which can lead to cirrhosis of the liver and death of a person. In the first place is a viral form. Despite the variety of pathogens (A, B, C, and so on), some symptoms of viral hepatitis are common. These include: loss of appetite, fatigue, migraines, fever, nausea and vomiting, rashes, joint pains and upper right abdominal area. Such symptoms are often confused with manifestations of other diseases.
Symptoms of chronic hepatitis
Other signs of hepatitis appear in violationfunctions of the liver, resulting in the release of bile into the blood. The consequence is the following symptoms: yellowing of the skin, the allocation of discolored stool and dark urine. This can talk about the transition of pathology into a chronic form.
Hepatitis is cunning!
But not all types of this disease are accompanied byactive symptoms. In a large number of people, signs of hepatitis are weak or nonexistent. This is the "cunning" of the disease. The incubation period can take from two weeks to six months.
Often a person does not suspect the presence ofpathology, writing off small periodic changes in the functioning of the body on fatigue from processing, gastrointestinal disorders or influenza. This is due to the similarity of some of the symptoms. Thus, the patient is referred to the hospital at a later stage, when the signs of hepatitis become pronounced. Naturally, in this case, precious time is lost.
Main criteria for diagnosis
From the foregoing, it can be concluded thatThe symptomatology does not always allow you to determine the diagnosis of "hepatitis" in the early stages. The main criteria are laboratory and clinical studies showing changes in blood composition and the presence of viruses of this type.
Children are in danger!
The situation in modern society is such thatmore frequent cases of infection of children, not only with Botkin's disease, but also other types of viruses. The complexity of treating small patients (however, adults, too) is to limit the permissible drugs. This is due to the danger of negative effects of drugs on the liver itself. As a result, you can get the acceleration of the disease. In addition, hepatitis in children causes complications incomparable with the consequences in adults.
No alcoholism and addiction!
Do not forget about non-infectious formsthis pathology of the liver. Relatively rare lesions occur as a result of autoimmune diseases and radiation sickness, due to the effects of chemicals and certain medications.
Alcoholism and drug addiction (not including infectionsexually and through blood) are the most common causes of toxic hepatitis. Often, this type of pathology in parallel with the virus form.
Depends on everyone!
In the end, it should be said that only from eachmember individually and from society as a whole depends on whether humanity can cope with the massive spread of hepatitis. Attentive, sincere attitude towards oneself and others, observance of moral principles and hygiene norms from childhood will become the key to successful struggle against "social diseases".
