My mom was diagnosed with Hep C in 1996. She has been told she can not be treated with Interferon treatment because she also has kidney disease. The last we heard she has about 50% kidney function. My understanding is that interferon would be lethal to her because her kidneys could not filter, or clear, the interferon treatment. Is this correct? Is there anything else that can be done for her? She is receiving no treatment and it seems the only thing to do is slowly watch the hep C kill her.
