Book Review
A total of 3.9 million people in the United States and more than 170 million worldwide are estimated to have hepatitis C, a viral infection that causes inflammation, injury, and ultimately scarring of the liver. Each year, 8,000 to 10,000 Americans die from liver failure due to hepatitis C--the rest live with it. Living with Hepatitis C presents the facts simply and positively, and removes the misconceptions. For example, this type of hepatitis is not sexually transmitted--if you have hepatitis C, your partner is in no danger from having sex with you, but might get infected by using your razor. You'll learn how infection takes place (blood to blood), how to keep your loved ones safe, how your liver works when it's well, 10 danger signs of liver disease, nutrition guidelines, emotional challenges, financial issues, treatment...


Silent Storm

Paperback

Book Description
Mark Prater faced a silent killer in Hepatitis C, an insidious disease that slowly consumed his health until he fought back with all the weapons of modern medicine. The struggle to regain his vitality proved as harsh as the disease itself, and, in Mark’s own words, seemed a burden nearly too heavy to bear. Mark’s story focuses not just on his illness, but on his faith, which in the depths of his illness led him to discover a deeper relationship with God. Public and private prayers for Mark and his family came from tens of thousands of sympathetic fans across the Southeast (Mark is a popular local television personality). Mark’s physical and spiritual fight against Hepatitis C taught him patience and, more importantly, faith in the face of overwhelming adversity. Presently, Mark is free of the disease,...

Book Description
A comprehensive, empathetic guide for anyone suffering from this serious liver disease
Approximately 4 million Americans and 170 million people worldwide suffer from hepatitis C, a viral liver disease that is treatable but not curable. It accounts for more than 40 percent of U.S. liver disease deaths-about 8,000 to 10,000 people annually-and is the most common reason for liver transplantation.

Book Description
Hepatitis C is a potentially fatal virus that attacks the liver. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Hepatitis C has already infected an estimated four to five million Americans, and worldwide it may have infected as many as 200 million. Most experts agree that if the rate of Hepatitis C infection isn’t curbed soon, it will eventually kill more people each year than AIDS. However, Hepatitis C is not always fatal, and it can be fought successfully. For many who suffer from the virus, eating properly can delay the end stages leading to cirrhosis of the liver. It also can diminish the uncomfortable symptoms of the disease. The Hepatitis C Cookbook has been prepared with the special dietary needs of people suffering from Hepatitis C in mind. Hepatitis C does not have to make eating a miserable experience....

From Library Journal
The authors, who are both infected with hepatitis C (HCV), add to Marlowe's "First Year" series for new patients with a how-to-respond guide that moves from the day of diagnosis through the first year of coping. HCV, a blood-borne virus, infects nine million Americans and nearly 200 million people worldwide. Even so, the general public remains unaware that this chronic illness is epidemic and that there is no effective treatment for the majority of its victims. The good news, as this book makes clear, is that HCV can be managed. In this straightforward, day-by-day manual, the authors provide a schedule for learning just about everything one needs to know about living with "hep C." This is an exhaustive but simpler and more direct advisory than Carol Turkington's Hepatitis C (LJ 6/1/98); healthcare libraries will...
