There are multiple reasons by which a liver can get affected. One such reason could be an infection due to Hepatitis B virus. Even though a person gets infected, the virus stays active for a brief period and disappears. This is termed as an acute hepatitis B. Sometimes the virus has a potential to cause long-term infection. This condition is known as the chronic hepatitis B. Usually young children are most likely to get chronic hepatitis B as their immune systems would not be properly developed. Hepatitis B symptoms are very typical to that of the flu, and most of the people will not feel the symptoms. If felt, then the Hepatitis B symptoms would include fever, headache and belly pain. Hepatitis B Diagnosis can be made using a simple blood test if the above symptoms are noted. It is advisable to get consulted with a Hepatologist if the condition is positive as the virus infects the liver first. Hepatitis B causes are many, and the virus is highly contagious and can spread quickly through contact with the body fluids and blood of an infected person. Hepatitis B Infections can also spread when the person has intercourse with an infected person or if one used an unsterilized needle for injections. Hepatitis B Treatment includes the usage of Hepatitis B vaccine and apart from that there is no treatment available for this in the market. Chances of going to the chronic stage are very minimal and in the case where the severity is extreme, a person has to undergo a liver transplant to prolong his life span.
