There is Now a Cure for Hepatitis C

Show: (October 8, 2018)

There are about 50,000 people living with Hep C in the state of Alabama currently.

The hepatitis C virus is carried in the blood and often is transmitted by sharing needles or other equipment to inject drugs. For some people, hepatitis C is a short-term illness, but for many it becomes a long-term, chronic infection that can result in serious health problems, even death, if left untreated.

Brendan McGuire,MD, and Michael Saag,MD, discuss the cure for Hepatitis C. They discuss when a physician should refer a patient and to be more aware of this cure so that they can get their patients tested.
