You should treat your hep c. There are new meds approved in the last couple of years that can cure most people.

As far as your question you should ask a doctor. We here are just a community of patients.

But you can enter BCAA in the search to see older discussions in this community as of now there are 9 results.

Hi there! I thought I responded to this, I guess not.
To help keep my strength up I started drinking a whey protein every day. I have now been doing it since 2008, I've been cured since 2012.
My whey protein has BCAA's
I also agree with above that you should treat your HCV.
The newer treatments are supposed to be much easier
