Hepititis B & C
ARCpoint Labs of Chattanooga offers testing for both Hepatitis B & C, both which are considered under the heading of STD testing. Both viruses can be transmitted via sexual contact or by sharing needles from intravenous drug use.
Both the Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C virus impact the liver and possibly other major organs. Hepatitis B (Hep B) is transmitted by the exchange of blood and other bodily fluids; Hepatitis C (Hep C) is transmitted through blood.
Many who carry the viruses do not have symptoms, so if you suspect you are at risk, you should get tested immediately and seek prompt medical attention. Chronic Hepatitis B and C may be managed through a variety of treatment options; there is even a Hepatitis B vaccine available. Unfortunately there is no vaccine for Hepatitis C.
