Epilepsy: The Ultimate Teen Guide
At least 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, many of them teenagers. There are many different types of epilepsy, and each type has different behavioral effects and is treated with different methods. This book, written specifically for a teen audience, dispels the myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings about epilepsy and people who have the disorder. It provides positive, factual medical information and advice for teens on living a normal life by understanding the symptoms; being alert to the signs and factors that precipitate seizures; and educating themselves about treatment methods, medications, and management strategies. Stories from teens who have epilepsy show readers they can participate in normal activities. They also offer advice on whether and how to tell friends, dates, teachers, or an employer about the condition. The book concludes with an extensive resource listing of publications, Web sites, and organizations, as well as an appendix that covers the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and how it applies to people who have epilepsy.

Encyclopedia of Hepatitis and Other Liver Diseases
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver brought on by viral infections, autoimmune diseases, alcohol abuse, exposure to toxins, or other causes. It is most commonly associated with viral hepatitis, which occurs in several different types, but it has also been linked to forms of cancer and other serious medical conditions such as cirrhosis. Liver-related health problems are a growing concern. As many as four million Americans could be infected with some form of hepatitis C, the most common chronic infection in the United States, without even knowing it. Cirrhosis is the seventh most common cause of death in the United States. The Encyclopedia of Hepatitis and Other Liver Diseases is a comprehensive guide to recognizing and understanding these medical conditions. Entries cover symptoms, treatments, research, tests, social issues, and much more. Its appendixes include lists of resources and statistics. Its entries include artificial and bio-artificial livers, cirrhosis, drug-induced hepatitis, fulminant hepatitis, hepatitis, liver cancer, liver transplantation, portal hypertension, primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, shock liver, and xenotransplantation.
