How long after infection is Hepatitis still considered acute?
Mar 23, 2007

I have heard that if hepatitis is discovered in the 'acute' stage, it is more managable/treatable, how long after the point of infection woud you consider 'acute infection' to be?

Response from Dr. McGovern

This is a very good question. At this point, most physicians prefer to treat acute hepatitis C within 12 to 16 weeks for the best results. However, if I diagnose someone as far as six months later, I will still consider immediate treatment.
