In 2005, medical clinics 1794 hepatitis patients received hepatitis C virus, accounting for 19% compared with the total number of patients presenting because of hepatitis from other causes.
While only 94 patients in total 4000 patients with hepatitis B have an inpatient admission to over 350/1.794 patients hospitalized with severe liver damage and permanently due to hepatitis of C.
In the past, people often overlook and do not take blood tests. Currently, the development of economic life, the people of conscience and concern for health problems themselves more. So, recently, the detection rate of hepatitis C virus increased by more than five years ago.
However, the economic life grows, more and more people in need of beauty. People to the beauty salon, beauty care, especially invasive lips - eyes in places does not guarantee the sterile issue, also very infectious hepatitis C.
Furthermore, dialysis patients also need to do long term tests to screen for hepatitis C. In principle, each dialysis should have a new filter. But in current conditions, many bearing basis must use the filter again. The technique can also use sterile filter bar, with trade of dialysis should extend to Lifetime risk of HCV infection is very high due to dialysis condition frequently direct contact with blood.
Symptoms are not significantly
With hepatitis B, most patients had symptoms. Children with acute hepatitis C often do not have symptoms significantly.
Some people only get ill-like symptoms such as fatigue, anorexia, nausea, flu, love you, joint pain and mild abdominal pain.
Other less common symptoms such as turns dark urine, yellow eyes, yellow skin. Hepatitis C is usually discovered accidentally when Medicals periodically or when the color.
A person infected with hepatitis C, can spread to others in the first 2 weeks. Therefore, Dr. Banh Vu Dien stressed, tests to check is an important thing. Many people infected with latent virus, a blood test is the only method for detecting the disease.
Should be detected early to value
Hepatitis C can be good if not treated in an early stage cirrhosis.
Most of the patients detected hepatitis C virus was too late compared to the period of treatment possible. Patients generally have early stage cirrhosis, or decompensated cirrhosis (ie ascites containing water, lady legs).
At this stage, the treatment medium medium high cost ineffective. In more severe cases, if a liver transplant, the patient must spend billions to pay but not as high efficiency, and the infection may recur.
However, according to Dr. Crazy said, today, adult liver transplant in Vietnam is not possible to perform in the near future.
"First, this is a very expensive surgery, because the transplant medicines are very expensive. Moreover, the Vietnamese Constitutional new organ tissues only allow donor family. But if the family has a people with more normal but the liver in the whole family to have problems of high risk of infection, "explains Dr. Crazy.
Appropriate eating: Reduce the risk of liver
La hepatitis C virus liver injury.
Typically the disease will progress gradually slow in the period from 20-30 years to eventually lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer. Many factors affect this process. Among them, the diet of the most important role to disease progression because all food and beverage rates are per pass through the liver to metabolize.
From the study patients about hepatitis C, Dr. Banh Vu Dien found, men aged over 40 years old infected with hepatitis C more inconsiderable. Additionally, people with alcohol use on 50g a day, short period of viral hepatitis C often pushed to go faster.
No serious drug addiction problems who own devastating liver can also occur with these cases to the nature of alcohol "social communication". Rather than turn to chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis of liver cancer is from 20-30 years' time or only have drank from 5-10 years.
Every day, people with chronic liver disease should avoid iron content from red meats, animal liver, even do not use pot, pots, pans, iron pan for cooking. A normal diet contains about 10 - 20 mg iron and may absorb only from 1 - 2 mg iron / day. Sparse amounts of iron can cause additional liver damage and even reduce the level of the patient's response during treatment.
Excision of liver fibrosis progression can lead to abnormal accumulation of fluid in the abdomen ascites or human causes is called ascites.
If the patient has ascites hepatitis C, just 1 mg of salt intake, 200ml solution results will accumulate in the body. Salt intake to less than 1 g / day.
Because hepatitis C often produces a feeling of appetite, the person should eat many small meals do, drinking enough water and light exercise to eating better and easier food intolerance. It is important first of all, the patient must have a consultation with a physician before any diet and a program would exercise.
