|Hi Dr. Dieterich
Nov 4, 2003
My husband has Hep C and is HIV Pos. He went through peg-intron treatment for 48 weeks, tested undetectable a month later. However, he has developed diarrhea again. Could this be due to the fact that the Hep C is active again or maybe a side effect from the HIV meds? Very concerned. Please answer. Thank you.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Doubt that it is the HCV, that does not cause diarrhea. Sounds like that is likely to be cured anyway. Look into the HIV meds or a parasite. He should see the doctor and get stool tests done. Congrats on completing treatment! DTD
worried, and pregnant
