Why does hepatitis develop?

Hepatitis can develop for various reasons, with the most common being viral infections. However, hepatitis can also result from other factors, including alcohol consumption, autoimmune diseases, certain medications or toxins, and metabolic disorders.

Here’s a breakdown of the main causes of hepatitis:

  • Immune cells in the body attacking the liver.
  • Infections from viruses (such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, or hepatitis C), bacteria, or parasites.
  • Liver damage from alcohol or poison.
  • Medicines, such as an overdose of acetaminophen.
  • Fatty liver.

How does hepatitis B virus spread?

Infected person’s faces can contaminate food or water, which is how hepatitis A and hepatitis E are typically transmitted. Additionally, eating undercooked pig, deer, or seafood can cause hepatitis E.

Contact with the blood of a person who has hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or hepatitis D can spread the illness. Contact with other body fluids can also result in the transmission of hepatitis B and D. Many different scenarios, such as sharing drug needles or engaging in unprotected intercourse, might result in this.

Who is susceptible to hepatitis?

The hazards vary depending on the type of hepatitis. For instance, with most viral varieties, unprotected intercourse increases your risk. Alcoholic hepatitis is a risk for heavy drinkers who do so frequently.
