Extrahepatic menifestations

Hi. I was discharged in 74 with HCV which was'nt a familiar topic then. But, the VA confirmed it. My symptoms did'nt show bad until 2019. I was successfully treated and undetectable... But, shortly via another test have been diagnosed with stage 2 CKD. Has any of you folks gone thru something like this. I did'nt have this condition before HCV.

  1. Hi . Unfortunately, chronic kidney disease is not uncommon for people who have been infected with Hep C. The risk is low if the disease is treated soon after infection, but it goes up the longer Hep C is untreated. Here is an article about Hep C and kidney disease that might interest you: The good news is that you are at the early stages. With dietary changes and medication, the progression can be slowed significantly. Are you on a good treatment plan? We have a sister community for people with chronic kidney disease where you can find some great resources. Here is a link: Thinking of you and wishing you the best. - Lori (Team Member)
