Hepatitis C > Working With Your Doctor: Hepatitis C

How Will My Doctor Manage My Chronic Hepatitis C?

Chronic hepatitis C infection is not the same for everyone. Talk to your doctor about things that you can do to manage your chronic hepatitis C. Your doctor may suggest lifestyle changes to help your body, such as eating healthy and exercising. Your doctor may also suggest treatment options.

You should have regular checkups and frequent discussions with your health care team about test results, the disease progression, and any health changes you may experience.

The more informed you are about chronic hepatitis C, the better you will understand your options.

Chronic hepatitis C management

  • Lifestyle changes and managing your health
  • Monitoring your chronic hepatitis C infection over time
  • Treatment options

The goal of treatment is to cure your chronic hepatitis C infection

Cure means the hepatitis C virus is not detected in the blood when measured 3 months after treatment is completed. Be sure to work with your doctor to come up with a plan that is right for you.
