What organ is responsible for some 500 bodily functions like breaking down fats, blood clotting and clearing the blood of drugs and toxins? The answer is your liver and you need to take care of it.
If an infection gets into the liver it could create all sorts of problems for you.
One infection to look out for is Hepatitis B virus. You can get this virus from blood to blood contact such as having unprotected sex with someone who has Hep B. Read more here.
If you get Hep B you might not know because there are often no symptoms. However symptoms to watch out for include loss of appetite, jaundice, abdominal pain, dark urine, joint pain and tiredness.
A simple blood test can show if you have Hep B.
To get tested or for more information talk to your doctor, community-controlled health service or sexual health clinic.
