Active Hep C.
Oct 6, 2002

Is it possible for hep c to be active or cronic in a person and never cause liver problems or will it eventually affect the liver and require treatment?

Response from Dr. Fried

Hepatitis C is a slowly progressive disease occurring over 2-3 decades. Not everyone develops severe liver disease with HCV, many people appear to have only mild disease. Consult your doctor so you can get the appropriate tests and decide if treatment is right for you.
