Every human organ has its functions and importance, including the liver which helps to detoxify the human body. Hepatitis E virus spreads through coming in contact with the infected person's feces and attacks the liver. This virus can also infect a person through secondary infection by means of contact with animals. The symptoms include fatigue, jaundice, sore muscles, dark urine, clay colored stool, weight loss, loss of appetite, fever. When compared between men and women, men are more likely to be infected than women in most outbreaks. Pregnant women who are infected with Hepatitis E can pass on their infection to their unborn child. Persons who have had liver transplants are at a higher risk of acquiring Hepatitis E which can lead to a chronic condition resulting in liver scarring and or liver cancer. A hepatologist should be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment where the practitioner conducts blood tests to verify the infection. The doctor would usually recommend an antiviral therapy to treat the viral infection. In severe cases, doctors can advise hospitalization to keep the patient from dehydration and to make sure he or she gets adequate rest to cope with the illness. Most people infected with Hepatitis E recover from it completely. In some cases, Hepatitis E can go away without the intervention of any treatment. There are ongoing studies to find a vaccine to eradicate the virus. Although there is presently no valid vaccine available, preventive measures can be taken to avoid hepatitis E virus.
