It seems like many people in their 40's-50's find out they have hep c as it's laid dormat for many years... please have your friend seek help from a hepatologist if not two!Do you have any ideas for treatment Know anyone that has it that's found a way to feel better... Thank You, she isn't feeling too bad yet she still drinks I worry about her all the time as we had a little close knit group of friends then the sh*t hit the fan a couple died... I was lucky enough to contract viral hepatitis over the summer, which started with a simple lymph node in my armpit... The worst part about viral hepatitis is that there's nothing they can give you to make you "well", and it takes about 3 months to "do it's thing".
Thank a healthcare worker i come into contact with those afflicted with Hep C on an almost daily basis....a healthcare worker few diseases scare me as much as Hep C............although there are treatments that can prolong the quality and length of life there is NO CURE for hep C.....best way is to avoid high risk lifestyles such as unprotected sex and IV's drug use ect....Hep C is one of the strongest bugs out there. Among each type there are genotypes, between them, ...a myriad of differences in treatment and outlook.
Hep C a virus and therefore is unaffected by anti biotics. Then years later get checked it shows up, if you've been exposed to it I mean.? Do yourself a favour, if you want knowledge, ignore anything in this thread and do your research. BTW, it is possible to have Hep C in viral remission (as good odds as 80%), the odds depend on the genotype, ...."A", "B" and other variants are not cross tolerant and are as different from "C" as Polio.
This means that when a person is diagnosed with HCV his or her name (and likely other information) is given to local, provincial or territorial Public Health.
Public Health officials have a responsibility to monitor cases of infectious diseases, including hepatitis C.
