Re: hep c complications
My husband was diagnosed with Hep C in July of 2001. We were fortunate and it was geno type 2. He started with the Interferon/Ribavirin combo in Sept 2001. When the Peg-Intron therepy was released in Early Dec. that year, he began it. Through all his treatments to this point he had miss virtually no work. Although quite difficult at times.
When he began the Peg, he immediately became quite
ill, missing almost a complete month of work. In Jan 2002, I insisted
on them testing him for anemia. He was at critical lows and was
taken off the Peg for a period of two weeks. We had thm run a viral
load at that time. He was clear. Although the Dr wanted him
to continue for another 6 wks, we said NO! He test 6 mo later and
was still clear. His LFT come back fine every 3 - 6 mo.
Interferon rarely manages to get a non detected, but when it does, it often results in serious damage worse than the virus.
There are thousands of pages about this written, most of them available on the internet, some of them written by the drug maker.
What you wrote here is what I read every day. This is why I sponsor a class action suit against schering plough. Thousands of people are destroyed by this drug and schering wants everyone to believe it was the virus. It is not, it is interferon.
I suggest you go to this link to learn more about the class action suit.
Many people do not like law suits, I am one of them. Law suits are the thing we do in a democracy to stop people, drug companies who misrepresent things, like claming to cure something with out letting you know that the stuff is going to damage the rest of your life. Also, hep c is rarely the cause of death among people who have it if they practice good nutrition and avoid certain things so interferon is a bad drug for a condition that does not warrant such a horrible drug!
If you can send me the blood work, I think I can eliminate some of these problems.
