Individuals infected with hepatitis E suffer from abrupt weight loss. Continuous feeling of nausea and vomiting makes them feel extremely tired and drained out of energy. However, as the infection progresses, individuals experience a yellowish discoloration of skin, what is commonly known as Jaundice. It is now that they feel an urgent need to visit a doctor.
Fever along with prolonged pain on the right side of belly shows that the liver has been highly infected. Most people also experience a considerable dark urine and light stool. Most of these symptoms are specific to hepatitis E, and the doctor can very well diagnose the condition by simply discussing your symptoms. However, your doctor will definitely order for a blood test to confirm the infection by detecting antibodies in blood.
Hepatitis E testing is similar to any other blood test procedure. If your doctor suggests you to undergo other related lab tests simultaneously, you will need to discuss preparatory guidelines before hand to ensure accurate results.
Results of clinical diagnosis of Hepatitis E are not very distinct from other forms of hepatitis. Therefore, doctors may also prescribe other tests such as liver function test or urine bilirubin to reconfirm results.
Hepatitis E infections are not life threatening and medications are easily available that can bring things under control. However, if this infection happens during pregnancy, it can be a serious concern and may even lead to organ failure. Therefore, it is always suggested that women in their third trimester of pregnancy need to opt for hepatitis E tests without fail. Elderly individuals affected by the virus need to be taken good care so as to avoid unfortunate outcomes.
