Hepatitis is a viral infection that attacks the liver and causes inflammation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is the leading cause of liver cancer and most common reason for liver transplantation in the United States.
The most common types of hepatitis are Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C, but there are also Hepatitis D and Hepatitis E infections.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluates chronic liver disease according to the following criteria:
Chronic forms of hepatitis can cause symptoms that range from severe illness and infection to shortness of breath and even coma. If you have hepatitis, it may be impossible for you to hold down a steady job and earn the money you need for your living expenses and medical costs.
