What is an acute Hepatitis panel?
An acute Hepatitis panel is a frequently ordered blood test that distinguishes between different types of viral hepatitis: A, B, and C. Viral hepatitis causes fatigue and jaundice in most cases. Some people may also experience pain in their muscles, abdomen, or joints.

Chronic Hepatitis lasts more than 6 months and usually is caused by hepatitis B or C viruses. Usually, no symptoms are present until severe consequences appear. Signs of alarm include:
