Hello, my husband has hep C diagnosed a year ago, he's been diabetic for about 30 years. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2014 and I am afraid it could be a consequence of a possible hep C that I got from my husband. I remember one day I used his lancet to check my blood sugar out of curiosity (very bad idea now I see). My question is, how long does it take on average for an adult to develop hypothyroidism from the date it gets the virus from someone? I have been tested liver enzymes and the results are normal but I know that doesn't really mean I am free of hep C virus.
