Hi, new to this forum. Just heard about this new treatment today. Diagnosed around 24 years ago from I V use but never considered Interferon due to the sife effects. This seems do able as I've been clean since April ' 99. Gen type3. Only problem is that I consume around 24 units of alcohol weekly more or less. Anyone have any feedback about this. Ready to quit but need that extra kick.
Regards to all.

Hi Fli,

I was GT3, and got myself treated with Sof+Dac from fixHepc back in November 2015. [Million thanks again to Dr Freeman!].

I have reported quite a lot on alcohol consumption during sofosbuvir-based treatment. You can use the forum "Search" feature to look back on previous posts about this from me and several others.

Basically, I drank alcohol moderately (more than you report) all the way through treatment and I am now still HCV free. Here is my report from 9 months ago:

fixhepc.com/forum/experts-corner/1088-dr....html?start=30#18184

OK, it was a scientific experiment with N=1 (one person), so not statistically significant. But I was so convinced it was the bug and not the booze that was messing up my liver, I went ahead and did it just to try show that alcohol consumption is a false argument to deny treatment. End result, alcohol had absolutely no effect on patient outcome (N=1, but I am sure I am not the only one).

For a healthy person, 24 units per week is not excessive. For everyone with Hep-C, the health priority should be to kill the bastard bug first. Then look to the booze if you still have a health problem.

Cheers,

Oor Wullie (AST=26, ALT=22, GGT=24, VL=0, ethanol > 28)
Diagnosed Jan 2015: GT3, 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.

Relapsed somewhere after all that... Bummer!

Jan 2018: VL 63 000 (still GT3).

Alcohol is not good for your liver, particularly with the added burden of Hep C BUT.....

It will make no difference to whether the treatment works or not. Your odds are as good as anyone else's, which is pretty damn good.

Here is a piece of research called:

Alcohol Use Among Veterans with HCV Does Not Blunt SVR Rates from DAAs

Or in English - Drinking has no impact on cure rates with the new Hep C drugs.

Thank you for sharing. I am almost finished with one week. Fibroscan is good, labs are good. I enjoy seeing other people's stories.
