diseases associated with hepititus
Jul 15, 2007

wondering what kind of severe diseases can develop with being a hepititus virus carrier, which would require medication companies will not cover anyone for any illnesses resulting from this pre-existing virus, so wondering how important it is to have prescription coverage for this particular condition.

Response from Dr. McGovern

For hepatitis B, the main concerns are liver disease or complications such as liver cancer. Would discuss your situation with your doctor further.
