"You answered your own question
It varies from an individual to another.
Just as some can be heavy drinkers for example and have little to no liver damage others will develop serious liver damage by doing the same exact thing.
I pitch in if I feel like I am fairly certain of my answer. Not too many genotyoe 4s out there. I am thankful that a couple of people I know were able to get coverage and successfully treated under Obama Care. I hope the new Trump Care won't hold up treatment for people. Again thank you for being a wealth of knowledge and support.
