5811Re: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] Genotypes
- Apr 11, 2001I think Milk Thistle is THE most important
"alternative" item you can take for your liver. There
is plenty of evidence, mostly from Germany, that it
really can help protect the liver. I have come to
believe though that it is important to make sure you
get a good, reliable brand, one with a good
reputation. I used cheaper brands for a long time and
so no results. Two brands that I know of that studies
have been done with, and do have very good
reputations, are Maximum Milk Thistle
(www.liversupport.com) and Thistylin. I have a
"subscription" to Maximum Milk Thistle, and a three
months supply is automatically shipped to me via UPS
every three months. I love it, it's very convenient.
I also feel better and my LFTs have gone down since I
began taking it. I have also read several studies
about vitamin E helping the liver. I take 800IU
Did your husband's doctor say how much scar tissue he
had? Usually they will give it a score - like stage 1
or 2. As for his viral load, if it's only one
million, that is not too bad, but it sounds like he
had the same lousy viral load test that I just had.
Mine stopped counting at one million, so I could have
one million and one, or a hundred million. BIG
difference. It seems like his doctor would want a
better test done before treatment starts, to get an
accurate count. It doesn't make any difference with me
since I'm not on treatment.
