Hep c and normal LFTs
Dec 20, 2011

My mother just diagnosed hep c, we were sharing razors 3-4 years back but not tooth brushes. Now, when I gave birth 1 year back, LFTs were normal and the dr didn't check hep c becoz she said there is no indication. Do you think I should get tested??

Response from Dr. McGovern

I think it is reasonable to get tested although the risk of transmission through sharing razors is much lower than other risk behaviors such as sharing injection drugs.

You will have piece of mind though with testing. I suspect you will have good results.

In the future, I would not share razors with other people.

Hepatitis B.please guide me what to do?
many thanks
