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:

• 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

The authors and publisher have agreed to donate a portion of the cover price for each book sold to The Kern Research Foundation to be used exclusively for research into a cure for the disease.
