This is to update the community of those who have a connection to hepatitis in some way. Especially geno type 1.
?I had lived with being hep c positive for approximately twenty years. I begun a twelve week course of new medication eight weeks ago. The virus load was (1,200,000) at the beginning of the course. On the fourth week the virus load had been reduced to an amazing (28). On the sixth week blood test the virus is now not detected. My liver function test is normal though my liver has a slightly above average fat content, this too can be reduced through diet and exercise. I still have four weeks of treatment left as I have completed eight weeks now.
?This is reassuring news and much welcomed for those awaiting or just to begin treatment. The medication I have been prescribed is Exviera dasabuvir / Viekirax ombitasvir-paritaprevir-ritonavir / Ribavirin . For all those who may be hepatitis positive, pursue the treatment as it is becoming more available, as the cost although still considerable has lowered and more health authorities are able to offer the treatment than in previous times.
?For any one that may be in a state of panic as to whether they may have the virus, the worst case scenario is that even detected positive, the rate of success of cure with the new treatment I have been informed by the hep c team who kindly manage my treatment is a staggering 98% which is brilliant news the hep c community has been needing for a long time.( On hope, foundations are built ) This news is a message of hope, keep focused and whatever your circumstances I hope this news brings comfort and a renewed sense of direction.
?If any one has any questions to the treatment and it's side effects, you are welcome to reply.
