MG, where you will be placed on a transplant list is according to your MELD score which is calculated by adding your creatinine, bilirubin, and INR, not your viral load. The higher the MELD score, the higher on the list you will be. If you are referred for transplant, they may require that you stop taking the herbals that you are currently taking. I don't believe you can "get the hep C under control" doing what you are doing. The only currently approved treatment is the "combo," which is ribivarin and interferon. We cannot advocate specific alternative treatments on this forum.
After you meet with a hepatologist, he will ascertain if you meet the requirements for transplant evaluation. There are many, many tests and meetings with various medical personnel prior to being listed. Please do follow up on this.
Best of luck to you.
