Health: Hepatitis C

The following is some information read in "The Star-Ledger" Newspaper Of New Jersey dated
March 3, 2009 written by Dr. Donohue about treating of Hepatitis C answering to questions about the treatment and diet.
"Treatment for hepatitis C consists of two medicines-interferon and ribavirin. Interferon is given intravenously once a week and ribavirin is given orally every day. The combination doesn't cure everyone, but it does provide evidence that a cure has occured for many. No special diet for hepatitis C is recommended. However people with it should be careful about alcohol. They should abstain, or come as close to abstinence as possible.
