    Hepatitis B - Should one be hospitalized?

    My wife was diagnosed with hepatitis B. Prior to diagnoses she had full body aches and we could not understand why. As she has visited rheumatologist in her blood test we saw AST = 850 ALT = 2200 and so we rushed her to check for hepatitis and the answer was positive. Now, because of high ALT and AST they have told her to be hospitalized to stay under observation of the doctors. And so she did. But as she stayed in the hospital they did not do much to her, they gave her strong painkillers for the....

    Can I get Hepatitis C/HIV from prolonged nosebleed?

    Hello! I've had a recurring nosebleed (daily) that lasted 2-3 months. I've since done cauterisation. However, I realised that I've been picking at my nose on a daily basis, and it bled everyday. The nose picking happened randomly and my hands were definitely not cleaned or washed. Considering that it was daily for a couple of months, and bleeding everyday, what is the likelihood that I contract Hepatitis C and HIV through the wounds in my nose (from daily surfaces that my hands come into....

    Hepatitis?

    A 27 yr old friend from Madagascar just passed away after a 4 month sickness. It is known that she had hepatitis (not positive which one- I suspect B or C).

I lived in Madagascar for a year and am quite disappointed in the medical treatment, especially where she was located (Southern Madagascar- very poor). She has a 20 month old daughter and I am concerned that the child and the 5 family....

    Can Hep C clear on its own?

    I was diagnosed with Hep C 2 months ago and had a viral load at that time of 4.4 million. My genotyoe is 1a, but my liver panel has always been normal and I have no symptoms. I'm not scheduled to see the GI for two more weeks, but was wondering if it was at all possible that my body will clear itself of the virus on its own? Could it possibly be a mistake?
