Hello,

Thanks for the query.

For diabetes you can consider consultation of an endocrinologist and for hepatitis C a gastroenterologist can help you.There is no complete cure for hepatitis C , may be this is the reason some doctors might have not proved helpful. A specialist is very likely to help you and guide regarding this.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.


Regards
