Effects of Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is caused by a virus that is passed through contact with the blood of an infected person. The infection leads to inflammation of the liver. The liver processes blood and filter toxins so they don’t cause damage to your body. The liver also produces bile, which helps you to digest food and stores glucose and vitamins. Inflammation makes it difficult for the liver to perform these vital functions. In time, the hepatitis C infection can affect the entire body. Early symptoms, including yellowing skin and fatigue, may be mild and easily dismissed. Chronic infection can cause scarring of the liver (cirrhosis). As the disease progresses, symptoms such as skin problems, blood disorders, and fever may appear. In the long term, hepatitis C can lead to severe liver damage, liver cancer, and liver failure. Early treatment can help delay or prevent serious damage.

Individuals with Hepatitis C can have compromised or failures of:

  • Digestive System
  • Central Nervous System
  • Circulatory System
  • Skin, Hair & Nails
  • Endocrine System
  • Overall Health

It also directly causes:

  • Gallbladder Grief
  • Bad Blood
  • Toxic Build Ups in the Brain
  • Inefficient Intestines
  • Musty Mouth
  • Fluids in the Stomach

Many people infected with hepatitis C have no symptoms, especially in the earliest stages. Some report general fatigue, fever, or non-specific aches and pains.
