HCV therapy can definitely cause thyroid problems; this has been well documented. Hopefully you received a thyroid panel prior to therapy and again at least once during Tx. Do you have copies of labs to refer to and check? And if so, what were the results?

I’m not a thyroid guru, but there are others in here that have had issues with this and will share their experiences with you.

Good luck-

Bill

As Bill mentioned..treatment can very often have adverse effects on the thyroid (hypothyroidism) and one of the main symptoms of that is fatigue. The normal ref. range for thyroid is...0.5-6 u/ml . Maybe have it checked as some docs seem to miss this,and it is easily treated with meds. Below is one of many articles on thyroid.

Good luck
