I was told I am cured of Hep C. I took the ribavivarin and interferon for one year. Its been three years with no detection of the virus..I live a healthy lifestyle, but wondering if an occasional drink would be a problem
Response from Dr. McGovern
I think an occasional drink is fine.
As you probably know there is some data on a daily glass of wine that is protective for the heart.
I would think by now your liver is continuing to get healthier and healthier. However, I don't know if you started with mild or severe disease, so ask your doctor about the exact amount they would suggest.
