Hepatitis B

Discovering Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a virus that infects the liver and is spread through body fluids and blood. It can cause short-term or long-term inflammation of the liver, which can show up as tiredness and yellowing. People can get vaccinated to avoid getting the disease, and antiviral drugs can help with long-term cases. Hepatitis B screening is important for finding and treating the disease early on.
