Other factors linked to a reduced risk of death include a hep C cure, less advanced liver disease, not smoking and well treated HIV.

On the flip side, a recent study found that hep C treatment was associated with rising cholesterol.
But not as well as those with compensated cirrhosis or no cirrhosis.
However, in a recent study those who had been treated for hep C before did not fare as well.
Eighty-five percent of IDUs receiving hep C therapy at a New York City syringe exchange program were cured.

The DC area’s MedStar Health attempted to significantly improve the rate of hepatitis C testing among baby boomers, who are at higher risk.
Highlights from the hep C–related studies presented at the 2017 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Seattle
Hep C infection routes among this population apparently overlap with those of their HIV-positive peers.
However, in a recent small study, hepatitis C treatment was not associated with an improvement in cognitive impairment in this population.
Researchers analyzed factors associated with testing positive for HIV following a hepatitis C diagnosis.
Highly effective hepatitis C cures have apparently succeeded in breaking up transmission networks among this population.
This feat could take only a decade, although hepatitis C treatment must be ramped up among gay and bi men at high risk of reinfection.
