- if a person had chronic hepatitis they should be more alert and visit their doctor regularly. Chronic and Acute Hepatitis- What should I do if I think I might have been infected with a hepatitis virus? Hepatitis causes liver tissues to scar and stop working. Liver is an important organ in our body, without it we all won't survive. To prove it to you, here are the major functions of the liver:
- process nutrients from food
- produces some proteins for blood plasma
- removes toxins from our body
- produces Bile
There are more functions of the liver and as you can see if the liver stops working it can't do any of its functions. This is very serious because this can lead to liver damage and liver cancer. If you have liver damage or cancer there's a very little chance of living for a long time unless you get a liver transplant. What is the treatment of hepatitis? Hepatitis A - The majority of people with Hepatitis A
virus will recover.
Doctor will warn the patient to stay away from alcohol and drugs.

Hepatitis B - A people with Hepatitis B needs to rest. The doctor will also tell the patient that they need to eat a
diet that is high in protein and carbohydrate.

Hepatitis C - A patient with Hepatitis C will be prescribed medications which are used for serious virus infections such as ribavirin. - usually all hepatitis goes away on its own.
- sometimes you might not know that you have hepatitis because there are no symptoms.

- if you have acute hepatitis it goes away on its own so yes it is curable.

- if you have chronic hepatitis, it stays in your blood so, the disease can be less curable
because it can cause liver cancer or liver damage. Hepatitis D: If you have hepatitis D it usually it goes away on its own, so there is no treatment.
There are no drugs to treat hepatitis D, but the doctor will advise the patient to stay away from alcohol and drugs and to get plenty of rest. What is the treatment of hepatitis? Hepatitis E: there are no treatments of Hepatitis E but the doctor will advise the patient to:

- get plenty of rest

- a person may not have any symptoms or they could become ill for a little time it varies on each individual.

- most people will recover and get rid of the virus without any problems. Fun facts- - people who drink a lot of alcohol can develop alcoholic hepatitis. Alcoholic hepatitis causes an inflammation on the liver.
- the most common hepatitis are hepatitis A, B and C.
- hepatitis D is the least common hepatitis.
- hepatitis A is the least dangerous. - hepatitis affects the liver and liver is part of the digestive system.
- therefore, if the liver stops working it will affect the digestive system and the organs within it.
- liver is essential to our digestive system because it processes our nutrients in our body in different ways.
- it usually stores some of the nutrients so that the body can use for quick energy. - the rest of the nutrients will be processed to make other important chemicals that our body needs.
- when the liver stops working or if its damaged, it can't continue to process nutrients from the blood that the body must have.

- this can lead to like brain damage and coma. What other parts of the body does hepatitis affect? THE END! Hepatitis terms: - ribavirin: a type of medication which is used for serious virus infections such as hepatitis C.

- cirrhosis: causes liver tissues to scar and stop working.

- inflammation: reddening or swelling of part of our body or skin. We hope you enjoyed our presentation! Bibliography- http://my.clevelandclinic.org/disorders/hepatitis/hic_hepatitis_b.aspx

- now the disease is not curable unless you get a liver transplant. What is the treatment of hepatitis? All hepatitis treatments depends on each individual. For example if you have acute hepatitis its not that serious so the treatment won't be that serious. The treatment can be, to get some rest and to stay away form alcohol and drugs etc.
