Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus that causes inflammation of the liver. Acute infections can be with or without symptoms. About 20% of Hepatitis C patients can fight off the infection on their own, but 80% of patients can develop chronic infection that can lead to scarring of the liver (cirrhosis).
Living with Viral Hepatitis
Liver cirrhosis can lead to liver carcinoma (cancer) and liver transplant may be needed. With recent new breakthrough medications on the market, 90-99% of patients can be cured. The newest drugs are easier to administer than older medications, are taken for a shorter time period, and have fewer side effects than pervious treatments.
LeMed Pharmacy has extensive knowledge in Hepatitis C management and will work with your healthcare provider to ensure that you are on the right medication to meet your needs. Hepatitis C medications can be costly, but we will work with your insurance company to obtain prior authorizations to have them covered under your benefit plan, or work with you to connect you to support groups and financial assistance programs as needed.
