Living with Hepatitis C: Everything You Need to Know : Now that blood donations in the U.S. and Canada are screened for the hepatitis C virus, we hear less about this contagious and potentially deadly disease than we used to. Yet, over three million North Americans are infected with hepatitis C - and 70 percent are unaware of their condition. Hepatitis C damages the liver - an organ that forms essential nutrients, balances our blood sugar, and plays a critical role in removing toxic materials from the blood. As liver damage progresses, the whole body may be infected, by fatigue, nausea, depression, loss of appetite, disturbed sleep, and other symptoms. Sever cases may lead to cirrhosis, internal bleeding, personality changes, liver cancer, even complete liver failure. This comprehensive addition to the Your Personal Health Series explains what hepatitis C does and how it can be prevented and treated. It discusses the medical aspects of the problem and the practical concerns of living with the disease.
