Today I found out that I hav Hepc. By reading all of the Q&A, I have noticed there are several people with HEPC and HIV. Does this come hand and hand?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Good question. There are many shared risk factors for hepatitis C and HIV. If you have one you should be tested for the other. If you have hepatitis C you should be tested for HIV. Go get tested, it will make a difference! DTD
