No, dialysis won't help treat Hepatitis C at all.

Some of the questions here... seem like they're posted by pranksters!?

Excuse my ignorance. I asked a valid question. This is the only way I can learn, is to ask, never mind how "stupid" it may seem to anyone. No prank, just don't have the high level of IQ that is expected of me.

Annoymous, I think you had a valid question which was obviously based on your level of knowledge. With the hep c virus the liver doesn't clean toxins from the blood like it would if it were in good condition. Dialysis cleans the blood of toxins so the connection is obvious. To me it doesn't seem far fetched to wonder if something like dialysis could help hep c. Please don't let an insensitive response deter you from asking questions. Sometimes people do ask questions as a prank but usually people on this site are willing to help anyone with information that may be helpful and useful. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask. There's a lot of information on the internet about hep c. I think Hepatitis Central is a good site for information on hep c.

Keep asking, keep learning. Knowledge is power!
