Oct 14, 2007

Sir I already ask u a question i have postive hep c with following answer given by u what precatuion & cure is given to me

as adviced by my doctor that treatment is very costly that i can not afford. Kindly give answer as early as possible.

It means the HCV viral load test is positive with a result of 217,000 international units per milliliter of blood. This indicates chronic infection with hepatitis c virus.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, treatment is expensive, and can have significant side effects, but treatment usually lasts around one year. Many people have a good response to this treatment which consists of taking a shot once a week and some antiviral pills twice a day.
