Hepatitis C and liver failure

Liver Failure can be quite sudden and quite fatal. Early treatment of liver diseases such as Hepatitis C will help avert liver failure and death

Hepatitis C and Liver Failure

The Hepatitis C virus is continually destroying liver cells. The liver works hard to repair the damage but at some point, the rate of liver damage exceeds the liver’s healing abilities and severe damage begins to accumulate resulting in liver cirrhosis and, if untreated, liver failure and death.

There is nothing more important for a person who is infected with Hepatitis C than to get treatment as soon as possible.
Yet there are a number of obstacles to getting treatment.

Of course, the most obvious obstacle to Hepatitis C treatment has been the cost of the medication however the availability of generic Hepatitis C medication largely solved this problem.

Even so, there are a couple of things that I often hear from people who have recently been diagnosed with Hep C and have sought to Hep C treatment:

From their Doctor

“I’m feeling tired all the time and just not feeling well but my doctor says that my liver is fine and there is no need to worry about getting the Hepatitis C treated.”

From their  Insurance

“I have tried to get treatment for my Hepatitis C through my health insurance but they keep telling me that I am not sick enough to qualify for insurance.”

Best Practice For treating Hepatitis C

Both the above statements are counter to all best practices for the treatment of any disease. We all know that the sooner one treats a disease the greater are the chances of a cure and the greater are the chances of not sustaining permanent damage from the disease.

This best treatment practice is especially true for the treatment of Hepatitis C where the worst consequence of having Hepatitis C is the development of Liver Cancer.

Nearly every week I hear from someone who has learned that they have developed liver cancer as a result of their Hepatitis C.

However, even if liver cancer does not occur the other risk of death from Hepatitis C is liver failure as a consequence of advanced cirrhosis.

What is Liver Cirrhosis?

Liver cirrhosis is caused by damage to the liver that replaces healthy liver tissue with scar tissue. Liver cirrhosis is caused by the Hepatitis C virus destroying healthy liver cells. For anyone with Hepatitis C this destruction of liver cells by the Hep C virus is happening every minute of every day.

There is no dormant or inactive phase of Hepatitis C… if you have Hep C it is damaging your liver.

Death from liver cirrhosis results when the liver is so damaged by the Hepatitis C virus that it can no longer function and death soon follows.

Before discussing this subject further I would like to share this email thread with you. The thread  began 21st  September and ended today:

Good morning Mr. Jefferys,

We were provided your number by a friend in Texas, whom you were able to help out with medicine for their Hepatitis C.

My father is currently diagnosed with Hepatitis C and stage 4 cirrhosis. We are having difficulties to find the medication he needs.

If there is any way in which you could help us, let me know. We would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

G.L.

Hello G.L.

Thank you for contacting me.  I am sorry to hear that your father suffers from Hep C but I am happy to help you organize the medication for him for treating his illness.

Please let me know his Hep C genotype  (different combinations of medicines is required to treat the different genotypes) and I will email you more information.

Best wishes

Hello Greg,

Is there any other way to track the package? Or to see if something has happened to it? It seems like it hasn’t moved in 11 days.

G.L.

Hi G.L.

I have just been informed that your package has cleared US customs – you should receive it in a day or two.

Sorry for the inconvenience – there was a fault with the tracking website.

Thanks Greg but unfortunately my father passed away last night

G.L.

 

My Father is Dead

It was a terrible shock and profoundly sad for me to read the news that G.L’s father had died suddenly of liver failure!

G.L.’s father died a day or two before the medication that might have saved him arrived.

In this case, G.L’s father died from liver failure. As well as failing in other functions his liver was unable to remove toxins from his blood.  The liver filters toxins from the blood but also the liver also converts food into the nutrients and energy the body needs. It also helps clot the blood

With acute liver failure, people may go from being fairly healthy to near death within a few days. … Ultimately, liver failure is fatal if the cause (such as Hepatitis C) is not treated.

Some Symptoms of Liver Failure are: muscle cramps; trouble sleeping at night; fatigue; decreased appetite and intake of food; depression.

In the extreme Cirrhosis of the liver can cause liver failure and death but before these events, there are many unpleasant side effects of having a cirrhotic liver

If G.L.’s father had started treatment a year ago, maybe even a few months ago, and cleared the Hep c back then it is very likely that his liver would have undergone profound healing and that today he would be alive and healthy. (Please click here for important information about how well the liver heals once the virus is removed)

It is too sad.

So I say again, as I have said many times before:

Get rid of your Hepatitis C as soon as possible.
