right now there are 2 drugs that are taken together, Peg-interferon & Ribavirin. This will cure around 40-85% depending on genotype of Hep C virus.

There are new drugs (Telaprevir & Boceprevir) coming out next year that when added to the present drugs it will increase the cure rate to around 80% for all genotypes.

Of course there are other conditions that will change the odds of cure, i.e. cirrhosis, insulin resistance, etc.

Like the other poster said see a GI or Hepatologist (liver specialist ) to look at options.

Best of luck

Don’t worry, your disease can be treated, but it will take some time. I wish I can do something for you.

Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV).
In traditional Chinese medicine, the condition is thought to be caused by pathogenic damp-heat;


TCM for chronic diseases is not just for the relief of the symptoms, but more for the solutions. This is why more and more western people like to have TCM treatment instead of western medicine.

This is going to be good. Kinda like if Lady Ga Ga would have ran through a Lion's den with her Meat Suit on.
