Once developed to this stage, various serious complications may occur, The patient’s quality of life is deteriorating, and even life-threatening.
In addition, the heart of hepatitis B patients is also tortured. Because many hepatitis B patients are discriminated against in society, which affects social interaction with others, and many patients also worry about infecting their family members with the disease, which makes the spirit in a state of anxiety and low self-esteem for a long time. So, will hepatitis B be transmitted to family members?
Will hepatitis B be transmitted to family members?
Hepatitis B may indeed be transmitted to family members. The transmission routes of hepatitis B virus include blood transmission, sexual contact transmission, mother-to-child transmission and broken skin and mucous membrane transmission. In the family, if one of the husband and wife suffers from hepatitis B, the virus can be transmitted to the other party during sexual contact.
In addition, if family members with hepatitis B share razors, toothbrushes, towels, cups and other daily necessities with patients, they may also be infected with hepatitis B virus.
Therefore, if there is a hepatitis B patient in the family, recommend family members to go to the hospital for hepatitis B vaccine to obtain immunity to hepatitis B virus. Before the vaccine is effective, couples should reduce the frequency of sex and use condoms during sex. The personal items such as toothbrushes and razors of hepatitis B patients should be used separately from those of family members to reduce the chance of infection.
Although hepatitis B virus can cause infection, as long as family members take protective measures and actively inject hepatitis B vaccine, it is possible to avoid infection among family members. Therefore, patients with hepatitis B do not need to put too much psychological pressure on themselves, and actively cooperate with doctors for treatment, do a good job in liver maintenance, and promote the recovery of the disease.
Hepatitis B patients who want to maintain their liver should stay away from the following foods!
Turtle soup is rich in nutrients and has a good nourishing effect on the body, but it is not suitable for patients with hepatitis B. The digestive function of hepatitis B patients is not good. Soft-shelled turtle is a high-protein food, which can cause dyspepsia in patients, and in severe cases, the condition may worsen.
As we all know, drinking alcohol is very harmful to liver health. Hepatitis B patients already have some damage to their liver function, and drinking alcohol will bring a greater burden to the liver, aggravate the damage to the liver, and accelerate the progress of hepatitis B disease. It is very detrimental to the health of patients.
>In short, hepatitis B is indeed contagious to a certain extent, and the family members of hepatitis B patients are also at risk of being infected. Therefore, if there is a hepatitis B patient in the family, family members should understand the transmission route of hepatitis B, do a good job of self-protection, and actively inject hepatitis B vaccine.
Hepatitis B patients themselves do not need to have too much psychological pressure. They should actively cooperate with doctors for treatment, take good care of the disease in life, and pay attention to diet. Only in this way can they promote better recovery of the disease.
