Also, why does the duration matter if in most cases the virus becomes undetectable at week 4? Why does having cirrhosis matter? Does anyone have any articles that can shed some light on this?”

“One good thing to eat when you don't feel like eating anything is a healthy smoothie. That will often go down easier than a solid meal, and you can pack it full of good things. Important to reduce or eliminate from diet: salt, added sugar, white flour, and pretty much any packaged or prepared foods or fast foods.”
