There are several types of hepatitis – each caused by a different hepatitis virus. The Hepatitis A Antibody (Total) Test will determine a prior Hepatitis A infection or an acute Hepatitis A infection.
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that can be contracted through unprotected sex, using contaminated needles, or other causes.
If left untreated, hepatitis can lead to fatigue or more serious issues like liver failure. What’s most disturbing is how hepatitis can remain dormant in your body for years and cause no outward physical symptoms. It may be impossible to detect hepatitis with just a physical examination because you may not have any noticeable symptoms.
