Pathway Hepatitis


Hepatitis is an inflammatory condition of the liver. Hepa is Latin for "liver" and the English suffix "itis" means inflammation. Hepatitis is characterized by other pathologies such as jaundice, abdominal and gastric discomfort, hepatomegaly, and dark urine (which is a sign of severe acidosis).

What causes hepatitis? Answer: Toxemia! When an organ like the liver becomes overly toxic, it becomes inflamed and the inflammation causes the organ to enlarge.

Hepatitis is a very common disease that can cause a lot of damage to your liver. In cases of viral hepatitis, there are some ways of prevention, but this generally speaking.

The most important thing to if you do not want to get infected with hepatitis is to keep a very good hygiene of your body and try to avoid living in crowded homes and most of all in unhealthy conditions. Because the viral hepatitis is mostly spread in the water, be very careful when travelling to places of the world where the quality of the water is uncertain. To avoid getting yourself infected with hepatitis, take care what you drink, where you bathe.
