Completely updated and now in its fourth edition, it offers guidance and answers for those infected by the deadly virus–and for their husbands, wives, families, and friends. Written by a nationally renowned hepatitis C expert and an award-winning writer, Living with Hepatitis C explains in everyday language:

• The nature of the disease and how it affects your body
• Pegylated and consensus interferons, the emerging standard-of-care
• How to understand confusing blood tests and biopsies
• How to avoid infecting others
• What to expect if you need a liver transplant
• How to deal with your emotions and grief
• How to protect yourself and your family from enormous medical cost
• What alternatives and natural treatments are available and whether any of them show promise
• What to expect in the future–new research, new drugs…and new hope!
