Hi everyone ..I'm a 65 year old gal who just got diagnosed with hep C. Just started Medicare and haven't begun treatments yet. Gotta get a US this May. I got acute high BP and underactive thyroid. I am glad I found this site. I am worried because they cannot ascertain how long I have had hep C. I guess it's the not knowing that's really bugging me. I don't have symptoms but I know that if not treated it will be bad . My other meds for BP and thyroid don't interact well and the liver being messed up. Well, I think, I'm not metabolizing properly. Oh man its like a Catch-22 you know what I mean?
