Hepatitis

Hi,

I wanted to know what the implications are if I scuba dived with Hepatitis A, I have heard that it is a bad idea. Is this true and if so, why?

Regards
Rocko

Rocko, for one, Hepatitis A gives you diarrhoea and I suppose that’s one thing you don’t want when you’re diving. The scuba diving may also cause further strain on the liver – another thing you don’t want. Then there is of course the fact that it’s a contagious disease and you my pass it on to the other divers. Good luck.
