Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver. It is caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV).

Hepatitis C is a contagious liver disease that ranges in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness that attacks the liver. It results from infection with the Hepatitis C virus, which is spread primarily through contact with the blood of an infected person. Hepatitis C can be either acute or chronic.

Symptoms include:

Loss of appetite
Abdominal pain
Dark urine
Clay-colored bowel movements
Joint pain
Jaundice (yellow color in the skin or eyes)

Blood tests diagnose hepatitis.
