七月廿八日為世界肝炎日,請接受乙型肝炎篩檢!

English | Chinese 就在七月份,全美及全球各地的醫學專家和社區倡導者將聯手宣傳「世界肝炎日」,以提高大眾對於慢性乙型肝炎的關注,該疾病現正影響多達 200 萬的美國人士。 雖然任何人都可能罹患乙型肝炎 (乙肝),但其中絕大多數為亞裔人口,佔全世界罹患該疾病人口近四分之三。在美國,多達 100 萬的亞裔人口罹患慢性乙型肝炎,佔全美罹患該疾病人口的半數。 但究竟何為乙型肝炎?為什麼對於亞裔社區可造成如此威脅? 乙型肝炎是其病毒經由血液和其他體液傳輸所引起的疾病。慢性乙型肝炎可以管理,甚至可以預防,但若對其置之不理,乙型肝炎所造成的併發症卻可能致命。 來自中國、韓國、寮國、緬甸、越南、印度及菲律賓的第一代在美亞裔人士,由於這些國家對於嬰兒接種乙型肝炎疫苗的比例偏低,因此特別具有高風險罹患乙型肝炎。事實上,絕大多數罹患乙型肝炎的亞裔人士,均是自母體出生時感染,因此在亞裔社區中,同一家庭裡多人感染乙型肝炎的可悲事例屢見不鮮。 儘管亞裔社區具有高發病率,但在美國,每三位罹患慢性乙型肝炎的亞裔患者中,卻有多達兩位不知道自己被感染,這是因為乙型肝炎往往不會產生明顯症狀。慢性乙型肝炎會隨著時間逐漸破壞肝臟,提高罹患嚴重肝臟疾病的風險。 當亞裔移民預計將在未來 40 年成為全美最大的移民人口之際,提醒大家注意這個所謂的「沉默」疾病,比以往任何時候更顯重要。幸好乙型肝炎可使用快速簡單的驗血方式輕鬆檢測得知。每個人都應該與自己的醫生商談關於接受檢測事宜 – 尤其若身為亞裔更應該如此。 若乙肝檢測結果呈現陰性,現在有一種安全有效的疫苗可預防乙肝,而且已在全美各地廣泛使用。若乙肝檢測結果呈現陽性,請與醫生洽談自己是否適合接受治療。定期篩檢以監控肝臟健康甚為重要,同時也有一些治療方法可能減少病毒數量,降低肝臟受到進一步損傷的風險。有些方法甚至只需一天一顆藥丸便可。 因此,在七月廿八日的「世界肝炎日」這一天,歡迎加入全美及全球成千上百萬位亞裔人士的行列,一起接受乙型肝炎檢測。 請瀏覽網站 hepBsmart.com 以獲得關於慢性乙型肝炎的資訊,並瞭解由 Gilead Sciences 所贊助的獲獎提名紀錄短片《行動起來》詳情。這部紀錄片記述了王中倫及 AJ 兩位亞裔美國人對抗慢性乙型肝炎的生活,以及他們的家人如何應對這種潛在致命疾病所造成的影響。這部影片的宗旨,是在教育、鼓舞並最終消除人們對於乙肝的誤解。《行動起來》配有中文、韓文及越南文字幕。 Read More »
