Hepatitis D refers to inflammation of the liver and a person can get Hepatitis D only if he/she is subjected to Hepatitis B. Hepatitis D is contagious and transmitted through exposure to the bodily fluids of an infected person such as their blood. While Hepatitis D can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term), it can develop only if a person is already infected with Hepatitis B. As a matter of fact, Hepatitis D does not necessarily have symptoms but few of its symptoms include joint pain, jaundice, vomiting, dark urine, fatigue, loss of appetite and abdominal pain.
HOW IS HEPATITIS D DIAGNOSED?
Gastroenterologists first evaluate your symptoms and conduct a physical examination. A blood test can confirm diagnosis of Hepatitis D. In order to check for liver damage, the doctor may order for a liver function test.
HOW IS HEPATITIS D TREATED?
There are no known treatments for acute or chronic hepatitis D. Medication called interferon for up to 12 months is recommended. It is a type of protein that may stop the virus from spreading and lead to remission from the disease. A liver transplant is a major surgical operation that may be recommended as it involves removing the damaged liver and replacing it with a healthy liver from a donor.
DID YOU KNOW?
Hepatitis D virus (HDV) is found only in people who carry the hepatitis B virus. HDV may make liver disease worse in people who have either recent (acute) or long-term (chronic) hepatitis B. It can even cause symptoms in people who carry hepatitis B virus but who never had symptoms.
