Once infected by HCV infection it takes  decades to manifest itself, but once it does, the consequences are severe: The disease leads to scarring of the liver that eventually damages the critical organ beyond repair. Late-stage HCV patients need liver transplants to survive.
There has  been a strong correlation between chronic liver infection and development of type 2diabetes.

You require a consultation with a Gastroenterologist for treatment of HCV infection.
Treatment of HCV has become better in modern times with use of medicines like pegylated interferon and ribavirine.
For diabetes you must consult a diabetologist for the proper control and management.
With proper treatment everything can be managed.
