Life after DAA Hepatitis C treatment: Have you fully recovered yet?

Life after DAA Hepatitis C treatment: Have you fully recovered yet?

Hepatitis C is a wide spread and deadly disease affecting an estimated of 3.5 million Americans.


Treatment for hepatitis C has evolved over the years, going from highly toxic drugs involving injections with horrible side effects, to medications with minimal side effects. Success rate of treatment options has also improved greatly Although the high price tag of the new DAA treatment is controversial, it has undoubtedly helped to cure many hepatitis C patients.


How is life after hepatitis C was cured? 

Unfortunately, it might not be as ideal as it seems. Patients found that symptoms of hepatitis C remained even after successful treatment, and many are struggling to achieve full recovery. The ongoing symptoms even after successful treatment are likely due to low liver function. Despite the elimination of the cause of liver injury - HCV, having been infected with the virus for decades, the liver could still be seriously injured and it is likely that recovery would be slow and require a long time.


To help the body and liver to fully recover from the long term damage, extra support is needed to boost the recovery ability.  The situation resembles a scar on your skin, if you leave it untreated (without any external support), on its own, it will take years to disappear or become less noticeable.

After treatment, the liver still has a lot to do to rebuild itself. Without additional help, this is often difficult, especially for the elderly or people with fibrosis or cirrhosis, as their recovery ability is low due to ageing and reduced liver function.

Risk of liver cancer remains
The road to recovery does not end with successful treatment. In fact, these patients still face an increased risk of liver cancer after hepatitis C is cured. Recent research shows that patients might develop fast growing liver cancer after DAA treatment, which might be related to the malfunctioning of the immune system. Therefore, liver protection and prevention against liver cancer is an ongoing task that must not be stopped.

Extra support for better recovery

If you have successfully cured hepatitis C but still do not feel like you have fully recovered, or if you would like to prevent liver cancer, extra support for your liver is what you need. By providing support with anti-inflammation and anti-oxidative properties to your liver, liver cells will be able to recover faster and better, reducing the risk of liver cancer.

To fully recover from hepatitis C, patients must recover full liver function. Ultimately, healthy and normal liver function is the key to a healthy life.

About 2.7 million persons in the United States are infected with hepatitis C virus in their blood. The majority of these individuals remain asymptomatic for many years following the initial infection, and many people can even live their whole life with hepatitis C virus in their body without knowing they are infected. On the other hand, some carriers will develop chronic hepatitis C, meaning that the virus in their body attacks the liver, causing liver damage with elevated alan
Since the introduction of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy, treatment for hepatitis C (HCV) was revolutionized, as patient outcomes are improved with fewer side effects and high cure rate. However, there is significant debate in the society based on studies that suggest HCV cure does not eliminate risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver cancer. Other research suggests the possibility of increased risk of developing liver cancer during and after DAA treatment in patients with hep

Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard. The extent of liver fibrosis can vary, and it is often classified in several stages. The most common classification is a scale from F0 to F4. F0 indicates no fibrosis. A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase / SGPT) is an enzyme that is mainly found in liver cells. The level of ALT in our bloodstream is the primary indicator of liver health.   What does high ALT indicate? ALT enzymes are normally contained within liver cells when the liver is healthy, but when the liver cells are injured or damaged by whatever means, ALT enzymes are released into the bloodstream, causing levels to go up. Therefore, by measuring the
You probably have already heard about the new antiviral hep C drug, which is effective but insanely expensive. It claims to have around 90% success rate, that’s why so many hepatitis C patients are dying for it even though it’s extremely costly. But apart from its expensive price tag, there is a bigger issue behind this new drug that not many people know about. Scientists and researchers have found an increased risk of extreme liver cancer related to this new drug after successful
Hepatitis C viruses share a common characteristic to other chronic liver diseases; it could damage the patients’ liver cells. Hepatitis C patients should focus on stopping or reducing the damage in the liver, and this focus should be the same for other chronic liver diseases e.g. hepatitis B, fatty liver disease, NASH etc. And this is exactly what YHK can do.   YHK can stop liver cells damage caused by hepatitis viruses, and can repair damaged liver cells, to he
