hepitis c and b together
Jun 22, 2008
what does it mean when you have been told you have hep.b and already have hep.c
Response from Dr. McGovern
Coinfection with both hepatitis C and hepatitis B is certainly seen in many patients. Often one virus will predominate over another. It will be important to check the viral levels of both viruses to see if this is the case. It is also important to consider a liver biopsy to determine the activity of your liver disease if you do have detectable virus in your blood.
