TOPIC: Why it's not a good idea to wait for treatment

Why it's not a good idea to wait for treatment 4 months 2 weeks ago #24112

Wondering if you should treat now?

This study was just published in Clinical Infectious Diseases and shows that waiting to get to Moderate or Severe Fibrosis (where you might qualify for free treatment) is not good for your health.

I was F0/F1 with no chance of treatment under the NHS. Even though I was "only" F0/F1 and so I was not going to die immediately, I knew I was sick. As well as the classic fatigue, I had all sorts of other little ailments - eczema, itching, alcohol intolerance, fungal infections and suspected lichen planus on the skin, unexplained eye infections, work colleagues often remarking that I looked "tired" (euphemism for "look like shit")...

All that is gone now.

Hepatitis C affects different people in different ways. Sometimes it takes a long time to really start feeling the symptoms, but in the end the bastard virus can really start to bite.

The cure is here today. Don't delay. Get yourself treated right away.

Cheers,
Diagnosed Jan 2015: GT-3, A0+F0/F1. Fatigue + Brain-Fog.
Started Sof+Dac from fixHepC 10-Nov-2015. NO sides.
Pre-Tx: AST 82, ALT 133, Viral Load 1 900 000.
Week4: AST 47, ALT 58. VL < 15 (unquantifiable).
Week12 (EOT): AST 30, ALT 26, VL UND
Week16 (EOT+4): AST 32, ALT 28, GGT 24, VL UND
Week28 (EOT+16): AST 26, ALT 22, GGT 24, VL UND
Ever grateful to Dr James.

Many of the drugs that doctors prescribe to patients are only slightly better than doing nothing.

For many patients, and that's many - not all, the results of DAA treatment on quality of life are hard to explain, but like you say - all sorts of annoying weirdness often seems to vanish.

We all get old, but Hep C seems to deliver the problems of old age way too early.

Like Dr. Freeman said, it's not a good idea to wait for treatment.

But you don't have to wait! Through this site, the only requirement is you have Hep C

You can sign up for the Redemption trials, it's easy and anyone qualifies...It costs $1600 for 12 weeks of Generic treatment (Epclusa/Harvoni)

Sign up here fixhepc.com/home/redemption-etrials.html

:cheer: :+1:

Welcome to the cure! This is for real and totally legitimate! Dr. Freeman is a Saint
