Hello, rajiv.pec,
I am sure that when they did tests for hepatitis, they did for all three types.
You mention that he was positive for Hep-C. I think you need more information
about the tests they did for Hepatitis -C. This type , in most people, does not
produce any symptoms (Although rarely) it goes into what is called "Chronic
Hepatitis". At this stage, the liver enzymes stay abnormal and one can
experience symptoms of fatigue, aches and pains in the joints, skin rash,
poor appetite etc. It is important to rule this out. Type-A hepatitis comes
from eating or drinking contaminated food or drink. During the acute phase,
there can be nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, yellow jaundice, poor appetite etc.
This in majority of patients gets better on it's own, with supportive care,
within 2-4 weeks. This does not turn into chronic phase.
It is important that you discuss with your son's doctor about these.
He needs to have the enzymes checked at least 4-6 week intervals to see
if they are improving. Fat restricted diet, Vit-B Complex, Vit-C supplements
are good for him.
I wish him well.
