What is Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is a liver disease that can range from mild to a serious, lifelong illness. The hepatitis B virus causes inflammation of the liver, which may lead to liver cancer, liver failure, and even death. There are two stages to the disease: Acute and chronic.
Acute hepatitis B infection
The early-stage (first 6 months) of a hepatitis B infection is called the acute stage and is manageable. Acute hepatitis B can range from mild illness with very few or no symptoms to a serious condition that may require hospitalization. Some people are able to fight the infection and cure the virus during the early stages.
Chronic hepatitis B infection
The later stage of the hepatitis B infection (longer than 6 months) is known as chronic hepatitis B. This chronic stage is more serious and may cause lifelong health problems. Hepatitis B cannot only affect adults but babies and children as well. Left untreated, hepatitis B infections can lead to serious health problems.
