Until recently, hepatitis C treatment required weekly injections and oral medication that a lot of infected people couldn’t take because of other health problems or side effects.
Today, chronic HCV is typically curable with oral antiviral medications taken every day for two to six months. You are considered cured if the virus is not detected in your blood 3 months after treatment is completed.
On the other hand, if you have developed serious complications from chronic hepatitis C infection, liver transplantation may be an option. And although there is no vaccine for hepatitis C, doctors usually recommend that you receive vaccines against the hepatitis A and B viruses.
Hepatitis C infection that continues over many years can cause significant complications, such as scarring of the liver (cirrhosis), liver cancer, and liver failure.
Hepatitis C treatment regimens have extremely high success rates with a 95 per cent cure rate overall. The cost of treatment in India starts from USD 1,002.
