HBV, a liver infection resulting from hepatitis B virus, is exceedingly serious. For some individuals, hepatitis B remains chronic, indicating it lasts more than six months. Liver failure, liver cancer, or cirrhosis—a liver scarring that lasts forever—are all risks associated with having a persistent hepatitis B infection. Most people with hepatitis B recover fully, even if their symptoms are serious. Infants and young children are more likely to develop a long-lasting hepatitis B virus. If you have hepatitis B, you can prevent it by taking precautions. You can’t cure hepatitis B, but it can be prevented by a vaccine.
Blood tests can reveal whether you have acute or chronic hepatitis B or if you are immune to the disease. A transient elastography ultrasound can reveal liver damage. The amount of liver damage can also be determined using this method. During this test, your doctor will insert a tiny needle into your skin and into your liver and then remove a tissue sample for study. You might have a liver biopsy if your doctor believes you have liver damage.
The Lok Kala & Cultural Society artists warned and educated the public about the dangers of contracting hepatitis B through an art exhibition. Participants included Sumer Singh, Alex Samuel, Deepak, Rakesh, Mohan Lal, and Mansi. Ambuja Cement Foundation awarded prizes to those who participated in conversations about hepatitis B to those who participated in the discussion. Abbuja Cement Foundation sent officials and medical consuls to the event to distribute Ph.D.s to the drivers who witnessed the performance and shared their thoughts and concerns about hepatitis B. The project’s director, Dr. Aiswarya, spoke with the audience and answered their inquiries.
