Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post from India.
If you have access to medications and can be adherent to medications once required, I'd expect you to live a normal life time. Not a guarantee and there's many factors, like drug use, hepatitis, tuberculosis and the like that can impact this..
With newer treatments, I believe strongly that we'll be able to achieve this goal with easier to take and even less side effect prone medications.
I hope this helps. Thanks for your comments.
Be well, BY
