    Can Hep C clear on its own?

    I was diagnosed with Hep C 2 months ago and had a viral load at that time of 4.4 million. My genotyoe is 1a, but my liver panel has always been normal and I have no symptoms. I'm not scheduled to see the GI for two more weeks, but was wondering if it was at all possible that my body will clear itself of the virus on its own? Could it possibly be a mistake?

    Understanding the Test Results

    My girlfriend last week called me in a grief stricken panic last week because she failed a medical for a job she was applying for. I was shocked to find out that she tested positive for Hepatitis B, which surprised me since she was given the vaccine at birth and so was I.

    Losing my hair

    My hair is falling out in clumps, which is devastating to me because how I've always prided myself on my hair. My hair length was always at the small of my back, flowing and very healthy and shiny. I've done some research and it's not looking too good in terms of treatment. Most people who have legitimately received treatment which resulted in significant hair growth had to shell out a lot of money and this just isn't in the cards for me. I am a recovering addict, a felon and unemployed....

    Worried about possible infection. What type of doctor should I see?

    I'm worried that I may have been exposed to hepatitis C. I let my friends talk me into getting a piercing while on vacation and the place we had it done wasn't exactly the cleanest. I know it was stupid and believe me I regret it. I'm a 28 year old man in good health if that makes any difference. I haven't had any symptoms but I tend to worry and of course looked up all the things that could go wrong with a piercing. The possibility that I could have hepatitis C has me freaking out....
