Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

You have to be evaluated for the indication of therapy for hepatitis C

For this I will advise you to visit a Gastroenterologist or Hepatologist who may examine you and may advise for tests like complete haemogram, liver function tests, ultrasound abdomen, HCVRNA quantitative, genotype of the endoscopy examination, lipid profile and overall the status of lupus disease like renal function, medication you are taking and suitability for the treatment

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
