Counseling the Patient with Hepatitis C Infection
||Most individuals who have hepatitis C experience jaundice and flu-like symptoms from this infection.
This answer is incorrect. Hepatitis C is a common infection that causes few or no symptoms in most people who are infected with this virus. Because most people who get infected with hepatitis C virus have no apparent illness after getting infected, most will never know they are infected without having a specific testing for hepatitis C virus. It is estimated that about 75% of people infected with hepatitis C are unaware of their infection.
