Apr 16, 2010

How worried should I be about being diagnosed with HIV and HEP-C my doctor told me ,that I may have been posistive for at least 10 yrs.

Response from Dr. Henry

HIV and hepatitis C co-infection can pose some additional health risk to a patient so a thoughtful approach to evaluation and management of both infection by an experienced provider is recommended. Many co-infected patients can do well. Treatment for hepatitis C infection is expected to get steadily better over the decades ahead while treatment of HIV infection is already good in most situations if there is access to a range of antiretroviral medications.
