If you are newly diagnosed consider yourself lucky all around,. You are lucky because now you know and you can take steps to safeguard the health of your liver. Also, it isn’t like the “old days” when interferon was the only treatment. In those days less than 50% of people were cured and the treatment was difficult at best. Today close to 100% of people can be cured in less time, with few side effects. So, if you have to be diagnosed, this is the best time.
