The Possibility Of Liver Disease Will Pass To The Child?
Hello, is there a man or woman who previously had liver disease and jaundice and was hospitalized but is now healthy (the liver is no longer problematic), will the offspring be affected?
please note that jaundice is usually caused by infection with the hepatitis virus, either hepatitis A, B, or C. Other types of hepatitis can also occur but are less common than these 3 variants. The hepatitis caused by infection generally does not decrease because anyone can get hepatitis if the risk factors are met, such as indiscriminate eating habits, unhealthy (free) sex, sharing needles and so on. However, some types of hepatitis, such as B and C, can be transmitted to the fetus conceived by the mother with the hepatitis. This is because the virus contained in the mother's blood, contaminates the newborn baby. Therefore the hospital has a protocol to at least give every newborn a hepatitis B shot. But this is generally not inherited because it is not related to genetics. We recommend that you consult further with the doctor who treats him. Here we attach an article about liver disease. May be useful.
