Hepatitis C Treatment

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 500 million people are infected with hepatitis C. In Romania, the incidence of hepatitis C virus is slightly increasing, affecting about 4% of Romanians, i.e. 800,000 people, the number of patients being similar to the rest of the European countries. In recent years, research has led to the discovery of a revolutionary treatment that can eradicate C virus in over 95% of the cases. The Digest Med Clinic offers the possibility of complete pre-therapeutic evaluation and monitoring of the antiviral treatment, having a contract with the National Health Insurance House (CNAS).

Hepatitis C virus statistics

In Romania, about 800,000 people are affected by Hepatitis C virus

80% of adults infected with Hepatitis C virus will suffer from a chronic condition

There is a treatment that can eradicate Hepatitis C virus in over 95% cases

How to determine the indication of treatment

Chronic C virus infection is detected by a blood test that detects antibodies directed against the virus. Later, liver aspect and appearance will be assessed through specific blood tests and abdominal ultrasound. When investigations show advanced liver damage, a higher digestive endoscopy is also needed. The level of the virus in the blood (viral load) should be evaluated before and after the start of the treatment. There are currently several therapeutic options that are selected depending on the degree of hepatic impairment as well as on associated health problems and current patient medication. All explorations needed to establish the therapeutic indication as well as monitoring during and after treatment can be done at the DigestMed clinic.
