Gastroenterology and Hepatitis C Treatment
Hepatitis C is a serious disease that often results in long-term complications. Many patients infected with HCV develop chronic hepatitis C. Some people become carriers of HCV without knowing it. For this reason, it is important to prevent spread of the disease by lifestyle practices that avoid contact with infected blood and body fluids. Researchers are continually learning more about hepatitis C, and research into new treatments is ongoing. Chronic hepatitis C patients who are monitored frequently, and follow the advice of their physicians, have every reason to be hopeful about the future.
