CONSIDERING HEP C TREATMENT?
It is truly an exciting time for people considering treatment for hepatitis C. In the last few years, scientific advances have made treatment for Hep C shorter and more effective than it was in previous years.
The main goal of Hep C treatment is to be cured. This is defined as having no virus detected in the bloodstream 3 months after treatment is completed. This is also known as achieving sustained virologic response (SVR).
You may wish to consult a specialist to discuss your Hep C treatment options. Gastroenterologists, infectious disease specialists, hepatologists, and even some nurse practitioners commonly manage cases of Hep C. As a result, they are among the most up to date on the latest advances in science surrounding Hep C.
