Were you looking for information about Hepatitis C? Hepetitus C is a common misspelling of hepatitis C.
Hepatitis C, a disease characterized by inflammation of the liver, is spread through infected blood. For example, this can happen by working in a dialysis unit or sharing needles for tattoos, body piercings, or drugs. While most people infected with the hepatitis C virus have no symptoms, some may develop jaundice, stomach pain, a fever, or loss of appetite. Healthcare providers will recommend treatment based on the amount of virus in your body, its genotype, and how much liver damage has already occurred.
