11 Warning Signs & Symptoms of Hepatitis You Should NOT Ignore!

Weight loss

This is an important sign that something is wrong, even if we are asymptomatic. Unintended weight loss should be an alarm sign if you’re not changing your diet or physical activity, especially if you lose 5% of your weight in 6 to 12 months. This sign can be pointing out to liver cancer in cases of chronic infection with the hepatitis virus. In patients with an acute disease, losing weight can result from loss of appetite and an increase in energy consumption as a part of the disease process.
