Managing Common Symptoms
Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is often referred to as a silent disease.This reputation for silence is based largely on the fact that the liver is considered a “non-complaining” organ. In short, the liver can suffer considerable damage and still function quite well. However, common symptoms are frequently reported by chronically infected HCV patients. Results of a study published in Hepatology stated that more than 70% of HCV positive patients reported at least one complaint.
