KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
At your first appointment and throughout your treatment, be your own best advocate—make sure the Specialist understands that your goal is to be cured. If anything is unclear, ask questions.
Now that your Hep C has been diagnosed, your Hep C Specialist will run additional tests to learn which Hep C genotype you have and the level of damage to your liver. This information is useful in determining which treatment options may be right for you. You will also get tested during treatment to track your progress.
Health Assessment Tests
- Hep C genotype
- Liver (hepatic) panel
- Fibrosis score
- Viral load
KEEP YOUR SPECIALIST APPOINTMENT AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH
Remember—the sooner Hep C is treated, the better the chances are for being cured. If left untreated, Hep C can cause severe liver damage, liver cancer, and even death.
