Medical Moment: Hepatitis C
“Hepatitis C is common in PCT. In some areas where this viral infection is quite prevalent, especially in Southern Europe and some parts of the U.S., as many as 80% of PCT patients are infected with this virus. This virus contributes to developing PCT in part by decreasing hepcidin levels that tend to increase hepatic iron and in part by other increases in oxidative stress. Other hepatitis viruses are seldom implicated (Porphyrias Consortium).” If you have Hepatitis C and PCT, contact Edrin at the APF today for information regarding a clinical trial offering FREE Harvoni.
