It is possible to have chronic Hepatitis C and not feel sick?
Yes it is...usually with your initial exposure you'll get really flu sick, but then feel normal for quite a while.
Eventually you will start feeling the beginning affects like depression, strange anxiety, fatigue, random nausea, itching, intestinal spasms, sleep disorders...there are a ton of symptoms that can be misdiagnosed as something else.
Exotic wonder is wrong - it is not a sexually transmitted disease - it's not passed through saliva, semen or vaginal secretions. It must be a blood to blood transfer where in the infected persons blood gets into your blood stream through an open wound.
If you are worried about it, your general practioner doctor can do a simple blood test to find out if you have been exposed called a HCV-antibody test. (+ info
Characteristic of Hepatitis B chronic patient?
Ok so I know what people who cannot clear the infections within 6 months are chronic patients. So are those chronic Hep B patients very ill? Or they appear very healthy?

these patients usually lead normal lives occasionally they have easy fatiguability, anorexia, bodyaches and muscle soreness. only risk is higher incidence of liver malignancies in them. (+ info

how a mother with a chronic hepatitis b breastfeed her baby?
From the World Health Organization paper on this topic:
"There is no evidence that breastfeeding from an HBV infected mother poses an additional risk of HBV infection to her infant, even without immunization. Thus, even where HBV infection is highly endemic and immunization against HBV is not available, breastfeeding remains the recommended method of infant feeding."
Hope that helps! (+ info
We recently found out that my boyfriend has chronic hepatitis B...?
I have had vaccination against hepatitis A and B. I went in for a blood test it indicates that I have no Hbs-antigen and I have a 721 IU/L titre of anti-Hbs.

Does this mean I could still safely continue our physcial relationship?
