could be the flora in your gut is imbalanced. Try probiotics and digestive enzimes. Fast from bad foods. eat fresh raw vegetables or jucies. Stay away from dairy caffine & meat. get your protien from a good protein powder mixed with coconut milk. Do this for at least 2 weeks then add the meat back in. Then the dairy. I cant use cow milk any longer but I tolorate goat milk products. There are many probiotics choose one that has to be refregerated these good flora cannot servive on the shelf. I use natural creations enterobiotic SBO because it has soil based organisims.
Thank you for sharing the link. Well I dont need to worry about side effects any longer. As of my appt treatment was suspended until I can speak to the Doctor instead of the NP. She felt I was not tolerating the side effects well so recomended I stop treatment. Seems I had all of them and they would only get worse so we need to talk about managing them before we go any further. I hope that was the right decission. I read that your body can reject it more the second time around. I dont understand why they dont know what to give a person to manage the side effects. They want me to see the specalist for each one. eye doctor, urologist, pain management specilist , phyciatrist for mood. obgyn for yeast. Seems backward to me. I think they should know what to do to manage the side effects. I didnt know I sould take care of my teeth before I started. I am in need of a crown but wanted to wait until I was done with treatment. I never felt such tooth pain this one has never bothered me. and gingivitus set in within the first week
Well that just sounds peachy lol I hope it dosent get worse for you. Mine water alot yet feel itchy and dry now. But that pressure was bad and it came with a migraine. I hope I can continue with the treatment.View Thread
Please know you can talk to those of us here without fear of Judgement. To me it doesnt matter how you got it, only that you are suffering through the treatment along with the rest.
I am 1 week into doing the double treatment not the tripple so I may not be feeling the full effect of the symptoms. For me, drinking tons of water helps with the flu like symptoms so far. I plan to look for Ginger Trips by Solaray at the healthfood store next time I go for the nausia. For brain fog I am going to try RNA /DHA. after I check with my Doctor to see if they will be ok. They should also help with skin/hair/nail dryness.
Do you have eye pain? Mine felt like they were going to explode for a 1 1/2 days.View Thread
longsh~ I also have geno type 2b and have some mild symptoms. My viral load is about the same as yours. I did have a ultasound and a liver biopsy which showed no damage. Everything I have read or was told confirms; If you dont do the treatment the virius will destroy your liver. It could take a long time or a short time depending on your lifestyle.
I was diagnosed in 1995 and I believe I contracted it in 1987 through blood transfusion , at that time I was told I had (Mono)Hep non A non B which later turned into chronic fatigue sysdrome. I was told at that time there was no cure and if my body didnt beat the virus on its own, it would remain in my blood and could potentually spread to my family (Which it didn't, not even through childbirth). I was told not to share utinsels, toothbrushes and not to donate blood. It wasn't until Dec 2011 did I find out that Hep non A non B IS Hep C , even my Doctors didnt connect the two. I am not a drinker or a smoker I do not use drugs. I look for alternative medicines or treatments I eat mostly organic vegetables and follow a low fat low carb diet and exercise regularly. These are contributing factors to the health of anyones liver. I still have fatigue which is my only acknowledged symptom. I have a Hypothyirodism, and a hormone embalance. During my research I found that one of the livers main fuction is to regulate the hormones all of them the adreanal, thyroid etc... I plan to start treatment at the end of Sept. I am tired of being tired. I hope this helps you deside whether to treat of not.View Thread
