How does Hepatitis "in general" usually kill you?
All I find is that the subtypes cause liver damage/scarring.
It's the liver damage that does it. Your liver filters out a lot of stuff you don't want in your bloodstream, and liver damage can also cause a decrease in platelets, and lead to bleeding problems. If your liver shuts down, you're in big trouble.
Yes, you're right it destroys the liver without which we die.
WELL IT DEPENDS ON WHAT TYPE OF HEP YOU GOT. IF YOU HAVE HEP B OR C YOU WILL HAVE IT FOREVER AND CAN PASS IT ON. BUT WHAT HAPPENS IS EVENTUALLY IT WILL KILL YOU B/C IT WILL DESTROY YOUR KIDNEYS AND LIVER, THESE TWO ARE THE 2 MAIN ORGANS THAT FILTER OUT ALL THE BAD STUFF IN YOUR BODY AND WHEN THOSE NO LONGER WORK YOUR "S O L" CAUSING THEM TO STOP WORKING BUT THERE ARE OTHER THINGS IT DOES TO BUT YES IT WILL KILL YOU EVENTUALLY QUICKER IF YOU DONT SEE A DOCTOR AND GET IT TREATED AND UNDER CONTROL.
Acute infection with Hep A, B or C can cause acute liver failure but doesn't happen that often.
The big killers are liver cancer and the scarring you mentioned which slowly leads to liver failure. The conditions are caused by years of infection with hep. B and C.
Hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver cells, it
is not the death of the liver cells. Death of
the liver cells is known as Cirrhosis.
The liver develops inflammation because it
is in response, by the immune system of your
body, to try to overcome the virus that enters
your body. It is like a group of soldiers going
after an enemy to destroy it. The inflammation
occurs, because of this, to try to stop the
virus from spreading to other areas of the
body easily. The only thing is, is that the
inflammation itself can cause damage to areas
of your own body if it goes on too long.
By taking medication to reduce it, it can help
your liver heal. If you don't take the medication
and seek medical help...the stress on the
cells of the liver will eventually be too much and
they will die (cirrhosis develops). When the
liver cells die off inside the liver, the functions
of the liver start to slow down and they can
no longer do the up to par work they once did
to help your body live well. The main problem
is that when the cells die, they turn to scar
tissue. That doesn't sound bad, until you
realize that this scar tissue is stopping your
healthy cell, you have left, from receiving the
nourishment and oxygen they need to survive
and they also start to die. This damage to
the liver is irreversible no matter what the
liver might try to do to heal itself then, it
becomes impossible. Until the researchers
find a way to remove this scar tissue or
dissolve it when it forms...there might be
no cure. Many people ask how long they
might have to live once it develops...it depends
on many factors...one being how much of the
liver is cirrhosed. So, I have to say, in
answer to your question...that Hepatitis,
in itself, will not kill you unless you ignore it
and don't take medication for it...for
it is the inflammation of the cells...it is the
cirrhosis that will eventually kill you
(without a transplant), if you develop it,
because you did nothing to help the liver
