THERAPY OF CHRONIC HEPATITIS C WITH INTERFERON AND RIBAVIRIN
Sorry, forgot to post link to EASL 2007 Search page:
I can't seem to link the page, but if you to to the search engine in the link, mentioned (http://www.easl.ch/liver-meeting/Program/search.asp) and insert "Hepatitis" in the "text search" box and then check
"Abstract Title" , then "search", you will get 248 abstract title links.
Great post. Thanks. After this study I would think anyone with either hep-c caused Diabetes or Diabetes from natural causes should avoid Tx at all costs. I mean really if treatment can cause Diabetes just think what the affect would be with someone who already has it.

We recently found a significant relationship between daily cannabis use and fibrosis severity in chronic hepatitis C (CHC). Cannabis Sativa binds two receptors, CB1 and CB2, and recent experimental data suggest that activation of CB1 receptors increases steatogenesis (Osei-Hyiaman et al, J Clin Invest 2005). The aim of the present study was therefore to evaluate the impact of cannabis use on steatosis severity during CHC.

Don't know if I'd go that far, but definitely something to take into serious consideration, esp if you don't have significant liver damage.
