Hi
Found this

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/06/110607105212.htm

Excerpt

Advanced hepatitis C patients with chronic liver disease may benefit from drinking coffee during treatment, according to a new study. Patients who received peginterferon plus ribavirin treatment and who drank three or more cups of coffee per day were two times more likely to respond to treatment than non-drinkers.

Guess I should be more regular at Starbucks next go round

My favorite beverage during Tx was 2-3 glasses of Green Tea a day.
Wow!!!!   Is it the best.
If anyone has a Publix in their neighborhood, they make it homemade with ginseng and honey.   Sell it in the Deli.  It's the bomb.
Green Tea is considered a Super Food for many diseases including liver.
Cleared my virus, with a little help from Sovaldi and Ribavirin.
Drink On!
