What is the Hepatitis A Virus?

One of the most important organs in your body is your liver. Responsible for detoxification, your liver also helps in digestion and also allows you to store energy. When infected, your liver might be unable to carry out these functions. Hepatitis A is an infection of the liver caused by the Hepatitis A virus (HAV).  The virus is transmitted via the fecal-oral route, so you can become infected if you:

  • Drink contaminated water or consume food that was processed in such water.
  • Consume food prepared by someone infected with the virus whose hands were improperly washed after using the restroom.
  • Have oral contact with any object contaminated with the stool of an infected person.
  • Provide care to infected persons.

Symptoms

For the most part, HAV infections are often asymptomatic but when symptoms occur, infected persons might feel as though they caught the flu. Jaundice is the most common symptom associated with HAV infection.

Diagnosis

Blood samples are used to diagnose HAV. The infection is usually self-resolving. However, chronically infected persons still carry the virus 6 months after infection. Consult your physician if you experience jaundice or flu-like symptoms. While HAV infection can be prevented with a vaccine, a good practice would be to ensure proper hygiene, such as washing hands with soap and water after using the bathroom, before preparing food and other situations that could potentially transmit the virus.
