Hepatitis Tests

We have reported on the need to be screened for Hepatitis C, to prevent liver disease and potentially, liver failure.  Dr. Rashid Khan is a liver specialist at Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital in Baytown. He said Hepatitis C has traditionally been the top cause of liver transplant surgery, but that may be changing. Dr. Khan said the demographic most genetically at risk are the Hispanic population. Unlike checking for Hepatitis C, detecting signs of a fatty liver requires more than just a blood test. Dr. Rashid Khan said generally a sonogram is the best way to find fatty liver symptoms. Your doctor can make a referral for liver trouble testing or you can contact San Jacinto Methodist Hospital’s Gastroenterology Center in Baytown at 281-422-7970.
