  • Description:
    What is Hepatitic C? -- How common is Hepatitis C? -- How can a person get Hepatitis C? -- How does a person know if she or he is infected with the Hepatitis C virus? -- What do the results of the two tests mean?

    "Most people with Hepatitis C do not have any symptoms and do not know they are infected. As a result people could be living with Hepatitis C and appear healthy while liver damage silently occurs. If you think you might have been exposed to the Hepatitis C, talk to your doctor about getting tested. By knowing your test results, you can get medical care, take care of your liver, and take action to avoid spreading the virus to others. If you are told you have Hepatitis C, be sure to ask if both your antibody and confirmatory tests are positive." - p. [1]
