What are the differences between Hepatitis a, b, and c
| Response from Dr. Dieterich
Hepatitis A is food borne or is spread by fecal oral means and never becomes chronic. Hepatitis B is spread by sex and then blood. Hepatitis C is mostly spread by blood and rarely by sex. Hepatitis B only 15% of the time becomes chronic. Hepatitis C becomes chronic 85% of the time.DTD
