4-yr co-infection
Mar 2, 2009

is there any need to seek treatment after 4 years of co-infection? would I be too far gone? Co-infected at the same time.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Certainly fine to proceed with treatment. First you should have evaluation to determine if you certainly need therapy. You should start with a test for HCV RNA to see if you are viremic (have virus in your blood).
