Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a chronic liver disease, affecting more than 210,000 people in the UK. The symptoms in the acute phase of the disease are quite mild and are similar to flu.Therefore most cases go undiagnosed. Your body automatically gets rid of the virus within 2 to 6 months. If your body fails to auto-clean the problem, you suffer from chronic Hepatitis C.

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms of Hepatitis C are very similar to flu and include vomiting and feeling tired. However, many cases do not show any symptom.
