i hope someone can help me. I saw a post the other day about not having a certain protein while on treatment. I think the name was isonone, but I am not sure. All I remember was that it did not let the ribivarin absorb properly. I tried to find it again and I can't find it :-( please someone help me. I am a non responder and I am waiting for the new drugs to come out. I want to make sure that I do everything right this time to reach SVR !!!!!! Thank you so much

Good Luck with that and when you understand it, please explain it to me.

I hope you realize that thread is speculation with no peer reviewed studies to back it and eliminating protein and salt from your diet doesn't mean a damn thing nor does it move you closer to SVR.  The original poster is not a dietitian, nutritionist or a hepatologist and cannot speak with certainty that her viewpoints are true just as I can't when I say:

I am also a relapser and view that whole concept as utter nonsense but to each his own fancy said the old lady as she kissed the cow.

Yes let the buyer beware is always the correct mantra when something is not studied, proven, peer reviewed and is only someones guess - even if it seems to make sense how do you really know this might not backfire in someway that could prove even more harmful? You dont. Be careful!

Hi Deb I am a newbie, I have 4 more weeks of tx, what I take away from the people who have posted here, that is if you are geno-1a like I am , you will probably have to treat again. That is why they say 50% clear the virus. I didnot go und at 12 weeks, so I probably have even less than that, My regret is that I have had this since the 70,s and I didnot find out sooner. Some people feel I am being negative, but I am a realist, I prepare for the worst, and if it goes well I am pleasantly surprized! I have recieved more info, from here, so if I have to treat again, I will have some different stratergies. Hopfully if I have to go it again, maybe the new tx will be availble, and tx will be shorter! good luck to you stalion
