Hepatitis C

The test for hepatitis C antibodies involves a blood test and results can be available in 4 – 6 working hours. There are also other tests available for hepatitis C where these are clinical appropriate.

Symptoms of Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a virus that infects the liver. There may be no symptoms at all, or only mild, flu-like symptoms. As such, the condition often goes undetected. It is most commonly caught through sharing equipment used to inject drugs, as the virus is more present in the blood than in the bodily fluids such as semen or vaginal fluid, but it is occasionally transmitted through sexual contact.

Treatment for Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C can be treated with antiviral medicines, such as interferon and ribavirin, but is not always curable.
