Type 2 is a very good diagnosis as far as genotypes go - you have the best chance for success.
Other variables for success:
- age - are you under 50?
- weight - normal or thin are better
- lifestyle - soundsl ike you have this one under control
- stress - can you control/minimize it?
- help at home with simple tasks & diet
As a type 2 I'd consider it. Also remember you can't win if you don't finish so be prepared before the long haul of treatment. Talk about all treatment side effects & what you can do to prepare now - like start on an antidepressant, what are you going to do if anemic, in pain can't sleep, have no energy? There are meds for all these common side effects if you are prepared to work with them., and jump on them right away.
