        Hello: Jennifer:
        Yes, if you are going to have this virus 3a is one of the easier forms
        to clear.
        I have/had genotype 3a but after 1 year of treatment I'm undetectable for the
        last almost two years now. So good luck to you and yours.
        Take care,
        Les

              Hi Jennifer,
              I'm glad you decided to write in! Good luck with
              the biopsy results. And yes, genotype 3 has a pretty
              good response rate, so your husband is lucky in that
              area. With the new pegylated interferons and
              ribavirin he stands a great chance of success with
              treatment. Let us know his results.
              Good luck to you both,
              Claudine

                      biopsy results showed no permanent damage, some scar tissue no cancer. His
                      count is over 1 million though with a Geno type 3a as you know. He is going
                      to start pegylated treatments in 6 weeks. He recently started with some herbs
                      including milk thistle, and is now on a low-fat diet. What do you all think
                      about milk thistle? He also takes a pill called liver cleanse. He also is on
                      a multi-vit,ester c and vit-e.

                          Hi Jennifer

                          It sounds good, he has a good chance of clearing the virus. I reckon all
                          the vitamins etc you mentioned are good, plus I would add vitamin B complex
                          without iron. I found this helped me with mouthsores, skin rash and dry
                          hair once I started treatment. good luck with it all.

                            I 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
                            daily.
                            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.
                            Take care,
                            Claudine

                                  Claudine, There is so much to learn. When we went to his Dr. we were in there
                                  for quite a while but left with so many more questions.Why does the
                                  interferon work and once cleared of the virus can it come back ??

                                      Jennifer,
                                      Claudine is right. Find out the vital statistics. Then research. Then ask
                                      us. We've done most of it and will share.
                                      I won't tell you my whole story, but I've been through three rounds of
                                      treatment...all of which failed. Don't be depressed. Researchers are coming
                                      up with new and different things daily. Also, this will get more attention
                                      than HIV did, faster, because it affects health care workers, which is how I
                                      got it.
                                      My failure was not due to lifestyle. I'm just too little to withstand
                                      treatment. And if I don't stop this, the treatment will kill me.
                                      I mostly lurk, but NOW I've really got to lurk. I've got to sell my house
                                      and this is going to be a MAJOR PROJECT!!!!!!! So you guys might not hear
                                      from me for awhile.
                                      Also we're getting a new computer and I don't want to set it up here and have
                                      to repack it and set it up there, too. So if you don't hear anything from me
                                      for awhile, that's why.
                                      Love you my wonderful friends. I pray for each and everyone of you, daily.
                                      Bye Bye for now.
                                      Anne

                                        Hello,
                                        I know I haven't wrote in a while, but I have been trying to make up for
                                        the year on treatment.....(ha ha) I have been off treatment for 3 1/2
                                        months. It feels good I still get tired. Have gained back all my weight
                                        and more. My hair is coming back but no curl yet I had curly hair. I
                                        went for my 3 month check up still non detectable (yea) but the doctor
                                        said my blood count is low 11 should be 13. So I have to get blood test
                                        and go May 5th I have to go to the hospital and get that thing where he
                                        goes down your throat and looks around I am not worried just a little
                                        concerned. Has anyone else had this done?
