Hi! I'm new here & also recently learned I had hep c. All of the symptoms had progressed to absolutely unbearable before I'd admit something was wrong to myself & had to be so sick for several months before mentioning to Dr. The symptoms are still too much. I'm looking for herbal remedies, vitamins, drinks & food to help. Currently I take many herbal supplements & vitamins! My anxiety is through the roof, brain fog, nervousness, fearful with headaches that are severe. Dr prescribed lactulose.

Hi Barbara, I want to encourage you to join either the Hep C Forum here at Hep Mag or Hep C Warriors Support Group at my website, On both support groups you can connect with other Hep C patients and be warmly welcomed. Everyone there understands what you're going through. Do your research about Hep C with credible resources like Hep Mag and our website, Life Beyond Hep C. Both offer resources to help you with being newly diagnosed and what to do next. Connie

Hi Barbara, I know this is difficult, but there is great hope to get beyond this. There's a specific test that has to be ordered to find Hep C. It's not done in routine blood work, that's why it wasn't discovered until now. Many times there are no symptoms. And those that are there mimic other conditions sometimes. New Hep C treatment has a very high cure rate, less treatment time and less side effects. Move forward and get treated. We're here for you my friend. You can do this! Connie

I have been diagnosed with hep C on 1/24/17. This is the first time I have heard about having it. All the times, I've had blood tests for other factors with my health: RA, low platelets, MGUS, thyroid, and osteoporosis, and nobody had a clue. I have had knee surgery in 2012. My past, during the 1960's and 1970's was rather wild. I have no idea of how long this awful virus has been in my blood and am depressed and scared.

Hi Sam, I'm so sorry your Mom is dealing with Hep C. The right diet for Hep C can depend on what stage of liver disease the patient has. A diet made up of non-processed foods is best for all patients. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats, with a good balance of protein. If she see's a liver specialist, they can recommend the right balance of protein for her condition. Drink lots of pure clean water also helps flush the body and help rid of toxins, while hydrating.
