HCV treatment

Jul 13, 2008

Daughter is 24 years old. Diagnosed with HCV approx. 4 yrs' ago. Liver biopsy result was "2", Genotype 1A. Do you feel treatment should be treated asap. She is on methadone maint. and has been "clean" 3.5 mos.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Unlikely this requires any urgent treatment. But this requires consultation with a liver specialist, who will also take all factors including any other medical conditions into consideration for treatment.
