When the therapy was just INF/Riba ..yes studies showed this to be the case.
unless you are on treatment, I wouldn't be so worried about viral load. iam 69 and my reading that I get has always been 6 mil. and up. contacted hep-c 40-50 years ago. life style is what's going to put you 6 feet under. good luck and god bless.
My husband has had Hep C geno 1a since 2002 and we had a bio done and it was grade 1 stage 1 did combo didnt cure. He has not seen a doctor for it since then until I just recently had him do his viral load and his Alt and Ast which were normal ranges. I am really worried about if he has cirrhosis but it doesnt want to go to the specialist til after the first of the year. If you dont mind me asking what symptoms do you have and how far has yours progressed if any?
