I found out i was hep c geno type 1 four years ago. I dont know how i got it . I been drinking an popping pills since my early teens, but i was also born to parnets who both had the silent killer. I did a study for 6moths it seemed to be working but it came back so they stop the treament. My liver biosopy was level 0 no damage the doctors just told me to wait until a better drugs come out.But having the silent killer put stress on you an cause major insecurities issues.Now ist just the wainting game hopefully by 2014 when the new meds come i can rid my self of the silent killer.In the mean time im just eating healthy taking milk thistle workingout and staying away from liquior and drugs.

    You are making so many of the right decisions. As long as you stay healthy and avoid drinking & drugs, you have time, and the new treatments are amazing. Genotype 1 is responding particularly well, and the new drugs will be on the market by 2014. You have time because you got the biopsy and know your results… this is the key indicator. Meanwhile, you can be a big help to other people on this site by helping to guide them in the right direction, particularly in terms of knowing their genotype and getting a liver biopsy. Your experience so far can be a real help so thank you for joining Hepatitis Connect and taking an active role in helping out.
