is this the ony treatment or is there other not so bad treatments

Response from Dr. McGovern

I believe you are asking about hepatitis C treatment. Genotype 1 is a type of hepatitis C. There are several genotypes of HCV which vary depending on the geographic area where a person contracts hepatitis C. In the United States for example, the most common type is genotype 1; this is more difficult to treat than genotype 2 or 3.
