Hi,

There is no permanent cure for hepatitis C once chronic liver disease started.

The only treatment option include anti viral medication and liver transplantation.

You need to regularly get checked your sgpt, sgot, serum albumin, and serum total protein estimation to check severity of the disease.

If your liver enzymes elevated with a high viral load than antiviral medication should be taken.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,

my brother has hcv and chronic liver disease. He is in a county jail in orange county california and they re not reating him with anything but diuretics. Has viral load of 2,580,000, has twice gained 20+ lbs edema with ascites, platelets @ 43 etc. I can t figure out which ond of the documents are the results of the ultrasound done 3 months ago. They re acting like it s no big deal and he s been waiting for a GI consult for over two months. Is there anywhere i can send his record for an evaluation to explain exactly what stage he s at and if riba/inf/tele is an option? They mention words like cirrhosis and decomsated liver disease and that just sound like it s something that keeping being put off indefinitely just because they don t want to treat him in a county jail. thank you. april warfield 714-402-2232
