Hi. Those are both terms for a hepatitis that is caused by blood transfusions. It is very rare and really not seen in developed countries where blood transfusions are first screened before they are transfused. If someone has it, they may become virus-free in time but some can have significant liver damage
No, there isn't any concern like there is with Hep B and C and you don't get it from sharing razors, toothbrushes, dinnerware, etc
Potentially, yes from the razors
But with hep B and C a person can be infected for months to years before they start to have any symptoms
No, you wouldn't have symptoms for quite some time if you did have one of those. But the only way to tell if someone has any of the hepatitis viruses is with blood work.
Yes--for Hep G and X it takes a full pint of transfused blood
I'll be happy to continue beyond this if you'll accept the offer more time offer
Don't know what you're reading but no--it's only transmitted by blood transfusions
That's for contact with people who have already had blood transfusions and then have contact with others.
But let me ask you something here--since you've obviously done some research on your own here, why did you need to first ask the question?
OK--no you really have nothing to worry about with being infected with Hep G or X
