I am a hep C patient diagnosed over 10 years ago.. At
that time a biopsy revealed no evidence of the virus or
any damage, blood ast and alt levels were only minimally
elevated for one year then normal. I was told to
go home unitl I had a problem since my DR did not agrree
there was any evidence to treat me at this time and said:
"Hopefully by the time you need a treatment
I'll have one that doesn''t mean the end of your
life .. do nothing crazy...no herbals, over the
counter drugs or diets that would add any insults
to your liver, oh and, abosolutely no alcohol,.
Call if your have any symptoms and get liver fct
tests every year any change come back immediately".
Life went on until I got some elevated levels alt / ast,
so I went back two years ago. Levels were still
only slightly elevated by 3-5 pionts and ultrasound showed
some fibrous changes. It is two years since: My
Dr still believes that the current ineffective therapies
are a higher risk than not treating me, he does not recommend
any invasive biopsy: just an ultrasound follow up and
routine blood test for function and AFP monitoring.
Should I seek another DR? I am herbally illiterate.
I am tired and have rheumatory like symptoms, itching
on occasion my lytes are good etc, but I am impatient
with this uncontrollable DX: more confused on whether
to seek some treatment options at all. I do have
pre-existing type II diabetes, MVP, endocrine issues,
am over weight considerably all at 41 years old with many
allergies both to foods and drugs. I am also educated
medically and don't like the results of current treatment
options either. Many people have died after
post treatment trials due to liver failure. Tell
me something new.. where are your trials of study?
Is there any resource either for or against herbals that
can offer me information pro or con? Please send
info as soon as possible to educate me on these trying
times of decision. What are your credentials? Services?
Fees? I would like to thank you for this site
and your feedback is important as is all who visit this
site feel free to post this without my address of course.
Pondering my options....
I was a patient, I was told I needed to do interferon
After interferon I was told I would die in 3 to 5 years
unless something else came along.
That was not acceptable.
In stead of me rewriting my books, send me an address
and I will send them to you. They are a easy read,
you will enjoy them and laugh.
You will also be able to read what people have to say
about me and my program.
I just can't let you go with just my books. Diabetes
is caused in the pancreas. The pancreas is an alternative
breeding ground for viral hepatitis. The adrenal
gland begins to come apart after long term stress and
disease. This is a serious blow in time to your
Arthritis symptoms are a major problem with most hep
Itching is a problem with 8% of people with hep c. I
can reverse everything on your email with my program.
Do not use interferon's. I must commend your doctor
The stuff is much worse than the disease.
