最新發現 罹患心臟疾病風險C肝高於B肝

62歲的張先生,最近時常胸痛、盜汗,就醫後診斷為急性心肌梗塞,住院期間發現並無傳統三高(高血壓、高血糖、高血脂)及抽菸的危險因子,詳細詢問病人,得知過去有車禍骨折及開刀輸血的病史,檢驗結果發現確實有C型肝炎。類似張先生的例子在心臟科病房並不罕見,事實上肝炎與心臟疾病的關係已愈來愈受到關注。

Cease the Spread of Hepatitis B and AIDS

To free our next generation from the threats of hepatitis B and AIDS, we Taiwanese have made great efforts to reduce mortality rate of hepatitis diseases and reverse younger generation’s view towards AIDS. Hepatitis B is transmitted in some of the same ways as AIDS, which include blood transfusion, sharing needles, tattooing, sex, etc. Based on the understandings towards such similar transmissions, combining predecessors’ efforts and legacy, Taiwan has thus made great contributions on disseminating information, transmission control and surgery performance.

防疫最前線 從受助到助人(二)

為讓下一代擺脫B型肝炎、愛滋病的糾纏,台灣人付出血汗,讓肝病不在是頭號殺手,同時扭轉台灣新一代年輕人對愛滋病的看法。目前兩種疾病共通特色,均經由血液或生殖液的接觸感染,簡而言之輸血、共用針頭、刺青、性行為等途徑傳染性較高,因應兩項疾病的根源,集結台灣前人的智慧與努力,無論在宣導、防制、手術,台灣成功交出一流的成績單。
