HepC Petrified 16 y.o. - RESULT
Dec 21, 2004

Dear doctor,

Thank you very much for your answer. My father said that I was vaccinated againts hep B before an operation (tonsils) and laughed when I mentioned my worry with hep C and this teeth cleanser. He said that he was in the army 25 years ago and he doeasn't have any health problems now and he's not going to test against hep c.

Should I go and test or should I forget about it?

Thank you very much and happy holidays.


Response from Dr. Dieterich

According to the CDC, you really have no risk for HCV so forget about it and go back to studying! Have a Happy Holiday! DTD
