Lamprey Health Care can treat Hepatitis C on-site. What does this mean to you:
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.
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.
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.
