Greg Jefferys Hepatitis C blog deals with all the issues associated with hepatitis C
One of the phrases that comes up a lot in discussions about Hep C is “dormant Hepatitis C.” Or the idea that Hep C can lay dormant, like a seed in the soil, until something triggers it or wakes it up.
No, there is no such thing as “dormant Hepatitis C”. When people refer to “dormant Hep C” they actually mean that there are no obvious symptoms of Hep C. The HCV virus is always replicating and always doing damage.
A patient can have Hepatitis C for many years without displaying obvious symptoms of Hep C. However the absence of Hep C symptoms does not mean that the virus is dormant, it simply means that the damage is not obvious. Its like saying that termites are not doing any damage to your house because you can not see the damage. The reality is that once the damage is obvious its almost too late.
