What is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus primarily affecting the liver. The liver breaks down nutrients, filters blood, and fights infection. Over 95% of people suffering from chronic Hepatitis C can be cured with modern treatment.

Who is at risk for Hepatitis C?

  • Baby Boomers, typically born between 1945-65
  • People who received donated blood, blood products, or whole organs prior to 1992
  • People who have injected drugs, even one time or many years ago
  • Individuals with chronic conditions such as liver disease, HIV or AIDS, or who are on hemodialysis
  • Anyone born to a mother with Hepatitis C
  • Individuals exposed to the blood of someone known to have Hepatitis C

What are the symptoms of Hepatitis C?

Most people do not show signs or symptoms of Hepatitis C infection. If you fall into any of the at-risk categories you should be tested. Those who do show symptoms may experience fever, fatigue, upset stomach, dark urine, gray-colored stool, joint pain, and/or yellowing of the skin and eyes.

How do I get treatment?

Hepatitis C is easy to treat, although treatment takes several weeks and requires close management. We offer in-house testing and treatment of Hepatitis C for our patients. Treatment and medications vary but usually have few or no side effects. We can manage your treatment and provide case management.
