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.
