Written by three eminent health experts and geared particularly to the Latino community, this book is a complete sourcebook on Hepatitis C—a disease of the liver that, if treated early, can be cured or controlled, but if ignored, is often incurable. Authoritative, compassionate, and easy to understand, this book begins with a description of the liver and its functions, then goes on to detail the facts about Hepatitis C, its causes, and its symptoms. Step-by-step information on what diagnostic tests can be expected at a health care facility, in-depth explanations of the latest treatment options such as the new combination Interferon–Ribavirin treatments, and comprehensive facts on liver transplants complete the book's discussion of both diagnosis and treatment. Escrito por tres expertos de salud, y guiado hacía la comunidad Latina, este libro es un manual completo de Hepatitis C—una enfermedad del hígado que, si es tratada tempranamente, puede ser curada o controlada, pero si es ignorada, puede ser incurable. Con autoridad, compasión y sencillez este libro empieza con una descripción del hígado y sus funciones, continuando con detalles específicos sobre Hepatitis C y sus causas y síntomas. Información sobre los examenes diagnósticos del hospital, explicaciones de los tratamientos más corrientes—incluso la nueva combinación Interferon-Ribavirin—y hechos comprensivos de los trasplantes de hígado están presentados en este discurso completo del diagnóstico y tratamiento de Hepatitis C.
