Hepatitis A is a communicable disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). It is usually transmitted person-to-person through poor hygiene practices of not the washing of hands after using the bathroom and because of this the disease usually goes through the fecal-oral route or consumption of contaminated food or water.
Hepatitis A disease that does not result in chronic infection. Most adults with hepatitis A have symptoms, including fatigue, low appetite, stomach pain, nausea, and jaundice, light-colored stool dark urine unexplained weight loss that usually resolve within 2 months of infection; most children less than 6 years of age do not have symptoms or have an unrecognized infection.
I worked as a CNA for a number of years, before retirement and during my time working in the field, I have come across a number of elderly people suffering from different types of chronic lung disease.
It was very painful for me to watch them laboring to breathe even with the aid of oxygen in some cases and it was still very difficult,
So I think we should look at some of these chronic lung diseases and their causes and what we could do to prevent them in our effort in maintaining good health.
