About Hepatitis test

Who should get tested for hepatitis?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anyone who has been exposed to the hepatitis virus should get tested. This includes those who have shared needles or other drug-injection equipment, people with HIV, men who have sex with men, and those who have had sexual contact with someone infected with hepatitis. Additionally, healthcare and public safety workers exposed to blood on the job, and individuals born between 1945 and 1965, a group five times more likely to have hepatitis C, should also be tested.

Importance of getting tested

Getting tested for hepatitis is crucial because it can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. Chronic hepatitis can cause liver damage, liver failure, or even liver cancer. Early detection through testing allows for prompt treatment, which can slow the progression of the disease, prevent health complications, and reduce the risk of transmission.
