Thanks for the reply. I use smokeless tobacco (which I know I need to quit completely sooner than later), but I have never used any other recreational drugs including marijuana. I have been offered plenty of times, but I have never had a desire to. Thanks to this forum, I am now aware of the causes and complications of hepatitis C. With this information, hopefully I will be able to prevent it. I have been vaccinated for A and B I believe.
I have scheduled an appointment with my normal doctor. What do you think about
my nose bleeds? From my research, I thought symptoms did not tend to show until cirrhosis occurred. Is it possible for fatty liver or acute alcoholic hepatitis to cause the nosebleeds (hopefully neither). In addition, should I be following a strict diet in the meantime right now? I am a little overweight but not far at all over the average for my body type. I am still nosebleed free since abstaining from alcohol. Thanks.
