Feeling cold with Hep-C
Absolutely yes. Last year I was healthier than the year before and I noticed my heating bill dropped by 1/3rd. The year before I would shiver until it was 28 C and then sweat when I got hot.
I think it is two parts: the endocrine system stops regulating body temp properly (mine is now an average of 35.5 C) and our livers do not seem to produce enough excess heat from metabolism or provide the glycogen for proper cell function.
If your on interferon and other drugs... yes you will feel cold .It takes a long time for those drugs to leave your body as well. If not you can use vit/min supplements to help with your overall immune system and hopefully aid some liver repair. I take vit/min morning/mid day/and before bed.
Split in 3 doses:
6000mg of Milk Thistle (1000mg cap) Don't use liquid contains dextrose
B 50 mid day -1
Vit C 3000 mg (2x1000 mg cap 3 x a day) don't use any chewable contains dextrose
Vit E 400iu (cap morning/cap night)
Zinc 50mg- cut in half (cap morning/cap night)
Selenium 25 mg (mid day)
Multi Vitamin (1 a day) don't use any chewable contains dextrose. Artichoke extract and Turmeric are also very beneficial to Liver repair.In some cases iron intake should be watched .Ask your Dr if this may help you.
