All kinds of hepatitis C information



Hepatitis C is difficult to understand, and there are LOTS of "experts" out there who are more than willing to take advantage of the uninformed.  Please feel free to call our National Support Line for more detailed and personal attention related to hepatitis C (number listed above).

The folks who keep the NHCC in operation are unique people. ALL are volunteers who help fund our daily operations, tend to our telephone support lines, attend health fairs, and do just about anything necessary to help the NHCC continue to operate. These folks are required to have extensive and personal hepatitis C experience behind them before speaking to patients or family members about the disease, but this is just so we can make sure that what's shared is honest, trustworthy, and that our reputation remains stellar and accurate as always.

Times are difficult for most folks and money is tight. However, we too have significant expenses just keeping the NHCC in operation, and this is why it's so important that we reach out to good people like yourselves who will help us remain active for the "cause".

Please remember us in your prayers as well as with your financial contributions, and we promise that we'll do our very best to be here when you need us!

The NHCC is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
Financial donation are tax-deductible.

Teresa's Story
(by Teresa)

I contracted hep C about 22 years ago while working laboratory yet it took me 22 years for anyone to listen. I had to beg and plead for a physician to test me for hep C. Finally Oct. 2001 I was diagnosed. I have had ALT's as high as 1200, my ALT's and AST's now average 300 - 400. My Alk. Phos. 222. I have stage 2 liver disease. I suffer with extreme nausea and vomiting and have multiple admissions. I suffer severe abdominal pain and liver pain. My regimen of medication is 

Oxycontin 80mg. 4X daily 
Zofran 4mg. Q 4 hours
Phenergan 25mg. supp. Q6 PRN
Spirolactone 200mg. daily
Prilosec 20 mg. daily
Albuterol 2 puffs Q4
Severent 2 puffs daily
and two chewable vitamins daily. 

If there is any hepper out there that can help my nausea I'd luv u for life.

I am now just waiting for a transplant, did not tolerate interferon and ribavirin. I tried to commit suicide. 

All are in my prayers.
