Viral load. I have fibrosis F1-F-2. Will talk to doctor tomorrow. Also I do itch with hep c but have read only itch with cirrhosis and I have none. Is that true? How high is cure rate for 1a with Harvoni?
Yes, Harvoni cure 1a and I know for sure because after ( in my case) taking Harvoni for 6months I am free of the virus and any damage I had after two years now and I was stage 3! Yes, I was itchy with HepC too but I did not have cirrhosis. It's gone now. Drink plenty of water when taking Harvoni, stay away from alcohol and exercise. It's a miracle! Please Take the time to read all the comments on this blog regarding Harvoni and the cure, you will be inspired. Good luck.
The itching is caused by relatively insoluble bile salts in your skin from jaundice. Type 1a is easy to treat and Harvoni has a 6 month sustained viral response rate of over 95%. 12 weeks is the current standard treatment for your condition; the addition of Ribavirin reduces the need for 26 week courses of treatment.
