Hepatitis C
Aug 17, 2000

How did Naomi Judd get cured from Hepatitis C? She said on television that she was cured. My husbands doctor basically said there is no cure.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Naomi took interferon and ribavirin. She also credits God and prayer. All four of those are a powerful combination therapy. She is right, HCV can be cured! We see it all the time. If your PCR is negative 6 months after stopping treatment, it is over 99% likely that you have cleared the virus forever! Go for it! DTD
