Bismyangel, Butterfly is correct in all she said. If you will scroll down on our main page to a thread called "Death and Dying Comments" and read that, you will get some info on the subject, given by a nurse who is a member here. Yours is a question that almost everyone asks when they first come here.
There is a real pandemic of hep C and no vaccination against it, as there is for A and B. I have hep C and Stage 4 cirrhosis and am doing well, after overcoming liver cancer which was also caused by hep C. Everyone is different. Diet can play a big part in controlling the disease.
Read some of our educational threads and some of our other posts. They are quite informative.
