Lots of changes have taken place in HCV management since you were diagnosed. Are you aware of the new drugs just recently approved? Have you treated your HCV in the past?

I was stage 3-4 fibrosis, genotype 1a and diabetes; it took a couple of attempts but I eventually prevailed; you may now be able to use the new protease inhibitor drugs and have better odds of success.

Good luck--

Bill
