Viral Hepatitis C

HCV positive persons should be evaluated by their doctor for liver disease.

The current hepatitis c treatments are interferon and ribavirin are two drugs licensed for the treatment of persons with chronic hepatitis C. 
Interferon can be taken alone or in combination with ribavirin. Combination therapy, using pegylated interferon and ribavirin, is currently the treatment of choice.
Combination therapy can get rid of the virus in up to 5 out of 10 persons for genotype 1 and in up to 8 out of 10 persons for genotype 2 and 3.

Drinking alcohol can make your liver disease worse.
