The hepatitis B virus causes an estimated one million deaths each year worldwide, and despite the availability of a hepatitis B vaccine, a combined lack of awareness and educational resources has turned this virus into a deadly epidemic. Author William Finley Green, who has lived with hepatitis B for almost twenty-five years and has become an expert on the condition, guides those newly diagnosed step-by-step through the first year following diagnosis. He provides charts and tables, crucial information about the nature of the disease, treatment options, diet, exercise, social concerns, the myriad of emotional issues that accompany the diagnosis, and much more. The First Year (TM)–Hepatitis B will be an invaluable guide for everyone struggling to come to terms with their hepatitis B diagnosis.
