RE: Hepatitas C
How much dangerous is this disease ? Is it recoverable completely? What percussions should be taken a patient of Hepatitas C. Please advise. Thanks.
These are all complicated questions that you should discuss directly with the heaqlth care provider. Hep C is the leading reason for liver transplantation in the United States so it can be a serious disease. With treatment, however, some people can be made free of detectable virus. There are many recommendations for patients with hep C, but key ones include safer sex and not drinking any alcohol. Seeing a physician for this problem is key to diagnosis and treatment.
