"It Affects Your Kidney And Heart Straight and it's killing many" This comment from the Doctor brought some rays of discomfort in the eyes of the TV Host. Doctors at the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital announced that one deadliest disease killing majority of Ghanaians which needs an alert is not HIV or Stroke. They explained to Joynews Health Desk that, the disease killing silently is Hepatitis B.
Explaining further, they noted that Hepatitis B mostly comes with no symptom. Mostly, before they discover that an individual is suffering from Hepatitis B, the person might have his or her kidney, heart and liver damaged.
They ceased the opportunity to beg government to make legislation which will make Hepatitis B treatment free for all like HIV.
" Hepatitis B is killing many people. It's very alarming because Government is not sponsoring it's treatment like HIV AIDS. That makes Hepatitis B patients to suffer a lot."
They further cautioned all Ghanaians to adopt a healthy eating lifestyle in order to preserve their kidney and liver . Again they should have regular check up on Hepatitis B strains and start medication if found positive.
