There are very few conditions known to man for which Hepatitis C and/or it's treatment has not been blamed.
Memory loss and confusion are verifiable complications of advanced cirrhosis.
Does chronic Hep C cause quantifiable memory impairment in a significant proportion of patients compared to a healthy control group of the same age-probably not.
HRQOL scores are ,however,significantly lower among Hep C groups than among controls.
is your wife blonde? Just kidding LOL. I gotta agree with you, my short term memory stinks. I often find myself missing a word in a sentance that I just can't remember, I can describe what I am thinking but just can't remember the word for it. If that makes any sense? I am 47 and honestly don't think it is an age thing.
