I already notice signs of the high sugars, increased urination, blurred vision, increase thirst. Glad to be alive and know what the culprit was, but sad to see it go. Sharon, try nopal cactus juice. AKA prickly pear cactus: Burn off the needles over a stove. Then put the paddles through a juice machine. You can save the and freeze the pulp in a ziplock bag to roast in an oven and eat with your proteins. The juice will bring your sugar down. I disagree with you both — Keeping in mind diabetes is one of 2 things, either you are a diabetic because of your food choices and environmental or medications such as Prednisone, or you are a diabetic because of Genetics — family history and genealogy.
When Genetics is the reason, gastric bypass or anything that alters the stomach is NOT a cure! In addition, dietary changes, fasting, and even diabetes medications are NOT a cure! In fact, I wish there was more money going into the Genetic testing of diabetes, but the research for that truly does need to be several generations and well…. It is a FACT that diabetes 2 is directly related to the deposit of fat in the liver and pancreas.
And he is not selling any drugs, diet fads or anything else. In his first study eleven Type II patients all reversed their diabetes by losing weight on a low calorie diet. When the results were publicised thousands of Type II sufferers contacted him about doing the same. He is now conducting research with a large group, including with a control group to further confirm the result.
The reason people are tempted by gastric band treatment is because all obese patients who have gastric band surgery show that diabetes is reversed typically within the first ten or so days of treatment.
Because the liver converts body fat to glucose in the circumstance of significant reductions in calorie intake — and the first fat deposits it uses are in the liver and pancreas. Then we were conned into believing that fat was the enemy. We now know that sugar and carbs are the enemy. Eat more fresh vegetables and fruit. We know the answers but we lack the discipline to do it. We lack self respect and intelligence.
We lack will power. I am Type 2. My A1c is 5. Doc said to take it in the evening. My night time BG is generally My morning BG is What do you think? If your A1C is 5. Fasting as in first thing in the am should be Check your BS first thing in the am.
And have your A1c rechecked in 3 months. Do some weight training, some biking and swimming if you can. I would encourage everyone to watch this information. Hi, first of all thanks for setting up this website as it really helps me understand diabetes management.
I have to mention here that I used to smoke for the last 15 years and had just quit about 4 months prior to the blood testing. Unfortunately, I ended up substituting the nicotine craving with chocolate. Unfortunately, the regular version played havoc with my digestion and after 2 weeks of torture I moved to the ER version, which I take post-dinner typically at 8: My problem is this: I have a blood glucose monitor and measure randomly.
All measurements were conducted over a month span. Is this something different than what others typically measure? I had contacted my PCP who had meanwhile suspected a diagnosis of sleep apnea, which was correct and I am currently on CPAP therapy , and she mentioned that she would want to wait at least 6 months and another HbA1C test before making any conclusions.
Then I read this article and I am wondering whether I am experiencing the dawn effect. Any advice on metformin usage?
You might try speaking to your doctor about taking your daily dose at bedtime to lower morning glucose. I hope the CPAP also helps. My doctor tested my A1c and it came back a She said I should be on insulin and in a hospital. In 3 months I had a 7. Lunch was a tuna sandwich, PB and fruit or hard boiled egg and yogurt with fruit. Dinner chicken, rice, broccoli, Red meat maybe twice a week, Salmon times a week. I blew it the other night, pasta with meat sauce and extra lean hamburger, some veggies and a couple of those freakin turnovers you get in the box in the deli section, and another one before bedtime.
My glucose was in the am. Previously, I took my metformin before dinner, or right after dinner, which was usually 7 or 8pm. One question, when you say it takes 2 hours to take effect, and lasts 5 hours, do you mean it will last 5 hours after the 2 hours? Stomach problems usually come by taking it on empty and your blood sugar can go too low with no food in your body when you take it.
My doctor said to take it with food. So take it with your am meal, then at dinner. Also have your A1c checked every 4 months. A1c takes 3 months to change, so give it a little space and see what you have going on.
Not taking Metformin due to bad reaction, but taking Januvia and Losartan instead. Glucose is high in the morning and spikes again at Glucose is typically just before lunch and dinner. Does this sound like leaky liver? I do have fatty liver. Are there alternatives to Metformin that I might tolerate? It does kind of sound like leaky liver.
There are a number of herbs you could try. Bitter melon, vinegar with dinner, or okra are a few that are worth trying, and there are more. If you have fatty liver, weight loss might help. I have type 2 diabetes I have fatty liver my diabetes has reversed I sill have no diet plan I eat what I want my sugar doent go up i stopped metphormine for a while and i started going online to see how it helps in other ways so I started back I wonder if it helps fatty liver since it does help you lose a little weight.
My AC1 result was 6. My doctor prescribed Metformin mg one pill in the morning with food. So today I started at 9 am with one pill with food. Then half hour later I started to sweat over my neck and back, hand shaking. I checked my levels and it was I ate bread after that, soda and chips to go back to normal….
I called my doctor and he said Metformin not suppose to do that, take half pill and lets see what happens and if he needs to give me new Meds. Any thoughts on this? Sounds strange, I have googled to find out anything similar but nothing was found. Even some people are taking mg a day…lol.
TA, Hospitals around here Portland, Maine know about this rare insulin-like behavior of metformin and will never allow inpatients to take it during their recovery from surgery.
It works much better than metformin to manage type 2 diabetes without medicine. I am new to this—72 yrs old—6. As the day wanes numbers go down but not to normal range. One days numbers 6: Next morning at 7: Took a 1 hour intro. If normal is mg dL, how bad off am I? Maybe I am way too soon for anything but diet and exercise for a few months? Why not keep taking your metformin, cut down on starches and sugars, and move your body more?
You should feel better that way. If you want to do something else, consider bitter melon tea or vinegar with meals. I take the metformin. Been doing this for about three to four weeks since the Dr. A problem I am facing now is with the restriction of carbohydrates, I am feeling light headed, weak in the muscles. When I complete a task I feel this way. It seems reminiscent of hypoglycemia. I have had this sensation from years past when I would down candy, ice cream, pop, or juice in an effort to alleviate the sensation, which it did do within 30 minutes.
How is it possible to have both at the same time??? This is an awful late reply, but move. I have an arthritic condition that plays hell on me. I do move but not as I would desire. My numbers have fallen down to the with a high of and a one time high of However after a second check a minute later and opposite hand i was at Currently I am using ACV and black seed oil.
The pancreas slowly burns out. Apparently, if everyone lived long enough, no matter their weight, their pancreas would burn out. Exercise helps your insulin sensitivity…. And really, as far as insulin goes, gumdrops are somewhat equivalent to pineapple. Both will spike your blood sugar. In excess, both of their sugars will convert to fat which then creates insulin resistance which then requires more insulin which then makes you gain weight because it is an anabolic hormone that causes weight gain.
Mmm, so maybe kudos for taking the metformin and hopefully with a little encouragement or back the heck off, even more kudos will be given with lifestyle and medication improvements. Maybe titrate the insulin higher.
Am Alice am on metforfin mg extended release which i take after dinner for the last 3 weeks. The problem is that am still getting after meal spikes of I have tried the regular metformin and did not work either.
What should i do? If you could walk after meals or take a spoonful of vinegar before meals, that would probably bring your sugars down. You should be fine. Maybe try a rapid acting insulin for meals with carbohydrates? What is your blood sugar before the meal? After meal spikes of are not bad for diabetics. Of course ideally you should be seeing but in the grand scheme of things if is as high as its getting you are pretty well controlled. At this point I would be looking at A1C with the intent of getting them 6 and under.
And out of sudden, non of the diabetic drugs are being effective. My glucose level reading is as high as This needs to be checked out ASAP. A glucose of 19 is way too high. I am sure you have done some research or watch some of Dr. Here is a link to his website with lots of science based info. I appreciate all you do for diabetics! Again, please reach out to someone who can help you through this difficult time, and please know that we care and are thinking of you.
And it takes help. Please reach out to people, either professionals or people you know, to get support for living with this condition. You might be amazed at how much having someone to share with helps. You can see many other ideas at the links Madavor Media posted. This will get better. Hi Everyone, I also have had experience juicing fruits and vegetables. To make it work you need to juice more vegetables than fruit.
I juiced every day for breakfast and lunch than had a normal dinner. I did loos about 60 lbs. Before the weight loss my leaky liver used to send me up over points from to without eating anything. After the weight loss it was more around a 50 point gain. So doing a juice diet or eating right either way will help.
The main goal is to loose the weight and I know from personal experience it is not an easy thing to do. Just keep at it. Juicing did help me mainly I think because I use to not eat any vegetables, but it was weird that I liked the vegetable juice or found it more tolerable. I used to do straight juices instead of mixed juices.
So find something that might work and just keep trying it is when we do not keep trying is when this disease will win. If your monitor is reading High then as far as I know your blood sugar is over at that point. I have quite a bit of experience with a diabetic who had dramatically high sugars like this and many times she ends up in the hospital for weeks until they can get it under control.
You also need to go see a specialist as well. That much insulin should be doing more than it seems to be doing. Also, it sounds like you have type 1 diabeites instead of type 2. Almost always type 2 is treated with medicines and not insulin…there are a few exceptions to that rule but very few according to what I know.
Part of that hopeless feeling you are having is from the mental effects of diabetes itself. The suicidal thoughts and depression will lessen as your glucose levels normalize. Evidently your body has partly adapted to the higher sugar levels because there are some people who are totally disabled and heading toward coma state after and you evidently are beyond that due to your monitor saying HI all the time. I was diagnosed early this year Was put on metformin mg x1 in the morning and x1 in the evening.
It was the devils own work and the side effects were terrible. Have been moved to slow release and the side effects are not much better. However, the metformin does work in that my post prandial spikes are in check. Its my fasting overnight levels that are a problem I had Gestational Diabetes with my youngest son nearly 3 and it was the same then.
As such, this article makes perfect sense to me as my morning glucose levels are always over target. I tried to take the x2 metformin at night instead, but it made the side effects far worse and made no difference to my overnight levels anyway. Hi Ange, It sounds like these metformin problems can be worked out. You might want to talk to your doctor about it, but rather than taking both pills at once in the evening, I would suggest going back to the way they were ordered, but taking the evening dose later, close to bedtime.
The intestinal side effects of metformin often go away with time. Ok last September I was diagnosed with Type 2. My A1C was My ketones were wide. I was basically in ketoacidosis but for the most part felt ok. I stopped drinking sodas and fruit juice and cut out donuts, pastry, and white bread. Two weeks ago I tested my A1C and it was 5. It was that simple cut out what I listed above and it changed that much. But I do still take metformin twice a day mg to control blood sugar.
I am guessing the insulin resistance is still present and will take time to return to normal. I feel so much better when I keep my blood glucose around Please take the time to watch a documentary about the raw food diet and diabetes. Cousins on You Tube. He has had remarkable results with type 2 and raw food. I can promise you this does work if you follow the regimen.
It can keep your diabetes in check, as long as you adhere to the protocol, which is primarily raw foods in many forms. I hope this information will help. Last 2 days before meds in am BG and Fasting since 6pm till 8: I decided to make some changes in my diet.
I cut out carbs completely and ate vegetables, strawberries, berries, and lots of protein. I experimented with my carbs simple and complex. I found the only complex carb. I would limit myself to a half of a slice a few times per week.
I also did stationary bike riding for a half hour and walking 1 mile per day. I gradually increased this to two miles per day. I have bad knees and lymphodema in one leg so walking does tend to bother me depending on the day. I made quite a few different soups out of fresh vegetables and stopped eating potatoes and rice. No white bread whatsoever. Processed white flours raise havoc on sugar levels with me. We increased the metformin to mg taken twice per day.
My doctor put me on Januvia, 50 mgs per day at first and then He wanted to see my daily levels between 79 — By the end of July my A1C was 5. I started not feeling well with dizziness, headaches, tiredness and weakness.
I could not get in to see my doctor so I wrote him and sent a copy of my numbers. I asked that I be taken off the mg of Januvia and he agreed. It has been 2 weeks. I feel so much better. Doctors can give us a generalization of what to do but they have problems pin pointing how to control the sugars.
I eat Greek Yogurt, lots of carrots roasted and seasoned, strawberries and berries as mentioned earlier. I stay away from noodles of any kind. If I want to treat myself I do occasionally eat 28 Chili Cheese fritos with sour cream. I know this sounds bad but if we eat the same amount of carbs as protein the sugars will stay stable.
I do know that the simple carbs are my worse enemy. I have lost a total of 60 lbs in less than a year and I am full. The plain Greek yogurt can be mixed with truivia, stuivia, cocoa, hazelnut flavoring, and berries.
Once in a while I throw some puffed wheat cereal as a topping, but only if I know it will be a while before my next meal. The highest my fasting blood sugar has been since stopping the Januvia is but is now usually in the range and stays throughout the day.
If you want to really keep your sugars level break up your meals and eat about 4 small portions throughout the day. You might be amazed. My cholesterol is also down from to Your body is the best medical advisor out there when it comes to Diabetes.
Please keep in mind that I am not a medical doctor or a nurse, but I have found what works with me by experiementing with myself. Keep in mind there are carbs in generally everything we eat, but know the difference between simple carbs which get stored and complex carbs which are used up quickly.
I am 57 and my father and his all develop diabetes in their middle ages all started with type II. So I am very much familiar with this disease. I find new information from your above article related to diabetes specially about the Metformin and its line of action. I just started Metformin 25 mg three times a day and check blood sugar level 6 times a day.
Before breakfast and after 2 hours. Same is with lunch and dinner. May be I am taking very less grams. Now I will again started with little high dosage and looking for new blood sugar level tables. In some lace it is stated that in future Metformin will be used to increased the life of human cells. I lann to take like mg 1. As kidney is a filter and will choke if not shake well foreign agents may seated inside the kidney.
Lets see how it works with slight increase of Metformin level in the body. Some people do take four or five doses a day, so this may work for you. What you shared in this article is very interesting. Should I consider what you say about Metformin the same way as for berberine. Does it work the same way and take it four to five times per day?
Thanks for your precious advises. I was prescribed mg of Metformin to take twice a day with food breakfast and diner. Thank you for sharing your story, James.
A week ago i diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes after going to the Urgent Care, the wife took me in because I had severe abdominal pain and upper back pain and pain my right shoulder.
I want to repair my enlarged fatty liver condition asap….. Robert, this sounds like you should see your personal medical provider to supervise your healing plans. This is not something you need to do ASAP, or now. You need to find out more about your body and what works for you. Check your blood sugars at various times and after various foods and see what makes it go up and down.
And nobody knows how long the benefits of such a diet will last. Please try to relax about this; see what cutting out the pop, Gatorade and beer, and taking metformin do. Then, if needed, try something else.

Hello, IAM Allwyn since I was injecting brown sugar and various pain killers and also have many tattoos , I was regularly testing my liver functions.. I panicked after seeing the reports But then I knew I will not die that easily..
I did not wanted to die.. I believed I'll heal myself through God.. I quit drugs and alcohol for more than 3 yrs.. Ate less non veg..
I took mg. I ate green bannanas everyday, drank butter milk, not curds.. I never discountinued free hand excerises yet..
I had isomania , then still suffering from fatigue , I feel depressed , I cry at times alone.. I felt cheated, lied, betrayed, degraded, humiliated , embarest, ashamed, worthless, helpless, lonely, sucidle, hopeless..
It's ok I think for reality isn't fare , Thought and felt God has his plans , and my plans never ever work.. One day at a time I help myself and my old sick bed ridden father who is 76 yrs old ,he had a stroke a year back.. We three with a sweet pet , kizza , my cat. I also believe that doctors are synthesising a cure from the blood of such ppl as myself. Therefore, cld it then be said that our blood wld simply cure others infected, if they are to catch within first months?? You be the judge!!!
The first questions asked me were, "What type birth control do you take? And, at age 30, I was still a virgin. During those 28 days and for a long time after I had many bilirubin tests. Anyone who had been kissing me or anyone who had come in close contact with me all had to get those glamagobulin shots. As I got better, I begged the doctor to write it up as my having mono so that I could continue to donate blood. What I am getting at is, 5 years ago my doctor in Florida said there is no way I ever had hepatitis or it would show in my blood stream today.
I had 2 other docors test me and learned the first one knew what he was telling me was true. At this time I am always free to donate blood provided I have not visited any of limits for health reasons country. I do love traveling including to mission countries that may not be considered safe health wise. But, isn't it something that in the diagnosis was so different.!!
What I am geting at is that just 5 years. Hi there, been almost 5 years when I was UD. My geno type 3 took 6 months solvadi sp? I worked and played racquetball thru it all. Stuck to the dosage schedule and was free of the dragon with little liver damage. God spared me from death and disability. I will start treatment for hep c shortly. I've had hep b I know the facts about its chance of reactivation with the treatment of direct acting antiviral epclusa both during and after treatment with this preparation.
A chance I will take. Living with hep c is is not an option I have to eradicate this virus and go on with my life. I am 19 years old girl I am recently diagnosed hepatitis C.. I haven't started my treatment but it gone a be soon started But I have faith on Allah Almighty He won't let any thing wrong to me.
I was diagnosed by receiving a letter from the health board on new years eve My doctor was out of town. I was an IV drug user throughout 70's but I was one of the few who had success beating my addiction after 21 months in a methadone program. My counselor saved my life on more than one occasion. I finally was accepted in a research study in which consisted of the old standard of care of Ribaviron pills a lot of them and Interferon injections along with the study drug, a protease inhibitor called Telaprevir.
I was called on April 10th , after months of intense sucking, and was told I was virus free. The worst part of the tx was the anemia. If I didn't know the poison in me was making me feel the way I felt, I would of been sure I was dying.
Hang in there people. I'm rooting for all of you. I beat cancer in also. Somebody up there likes me, for some reason. I have hep c and abnormal hep b core antibodies with reactive surface antigens.
I have no doubt where I pick these two abnormalities, iv drug use. I was always hit with double trouble when discrepancies in social norms where affected in and around my life.
My advice to anybody knowingly goes in for this life it doesn't help to close your eyes the out come can and will open your eyes to a world of heartache and pain not only to self but to people in your life but people in your future or future?
You might say I grew up with hep c. I was a addict. I need no further explanation why or how hep c entered my life. Much wiser now and for a long time too about using needles I still am left with this virus.
I'm getting help from the Dr that ordered the screening I will know very soon about my treatment options. I have family support but need more info into more detail about this disease. Education ends ignorance Thank you. Been sick with hep c for five years I have no appetite my guts hurt I hardly even eat anything I just throw it up I'm always sick I have lost so much weight I'm just bones now my life sucks daily I don't know what to do for relief anymore I feel like I'm going to die on a daily basis I'm trying to get medical thc card but it's to costly I wish my insurance card cover so relief I feel like I'm just waiting to die everyday I live in cape Coral FL I'm trying to get SSI but keep getting denied I feel like a forgotten American can somebody help me point me in the right direction for some relief please.
Im 65 yrs old geno 3 F1 felt ok before treatment epclusa im on day 6 hasnt been too bad bit of anxiety, i had ringing in ears on friday told liver nurse advised me to go to bed now its monday and i cant hear anything in right ear, ive never had ear problems before starting tx, i think i wont take anymore, rang liver nurse said she never heard of anyone having ear ringing tinningitis!!
Yes im worried big time hope its not too late to stop these pills before something else stuffs up. I had Hep C genotype one for forty years. I was diagnosed in I went through two treatments with no success. I finally was cured with Harvoni and Ribivarin.
I went to a liver specialist a couple of weeks ago and had a fibroscan. I will still get a ultrasound once a year to make sure. I am watching my diet and no alcohol at all. I am 67 years old and want to be here for my grandchildren to know their grampa as I never had a chance to know mine. Good luck to all. May decided to seek treatment with Epclusa. Type 3a, viral lode 10,, After 4 weeks viral load 70 ,still elavated enzymes. Tested 2 weeks later, no hep c detected!
I read a lot of negative info about side effects but I experienced only slight headaches. Lots of water helps. Do not be swayed from treatment by internet info. Make a decision based on what you want your life to be moving forward. Best of life to all. Hello, I am 20 years out of hard core addiction. I have hepatitis c type 3. Went for testing finally ready to face it. Perfect numbers across the board with an F0 and absolutely no scarring.
Fatty liver is my only issue. All of my blood work from diabetes to cholesterol I am 25 pounds overweight, living a low carbs lifestyle but couldn't lose these last 25 pounds. I believe this helped me maintain amazing health. Some may disagree, I am walking proof. Two years ago based on amazing health, I wouldn't of been eligible to even receive care for my hepatitis because my panels are amazing praise God but today I was offered it.
Doctors said I'd probably fall into the category of those who die of old age with no issues. Another shout out to God. I started the Mavyret so afraid on Friday three days ago, and was so fearful. Followed the directions and literally not one side effect.
I did feel a tiny headache which went away with a lot of water drinking and some tiredness but I was so used to being tired from this disease, honestly it may not even be the medication. I got up today realizing if a side effect was coming. I'd of had it. Do not be afraid. If you can get it. Just eat a really good meal before you take your daily dose and drink fluids.
I hate straight water so I got tons of Gatorade. I was so afraid. Just praying I'm one of the 95 percent who get that cured panel in another 7 weeks. I was told in that I had Hepatitis C at that time the doctor that told me that there was going to be a treatment and it was a chemotherapy treatment just like they give Cancer patients.
Sometime later my doctor sent me to U. A, for treatment and after the third day, I had to stop because I was never so sick in my life and they told me I could not continue with the treatment. I thought I was just going to get sick and die. As time went on I never got sick and a few years ago I was going to a new doctor who checked my Liver with a blood test that took eight bottles of blood and came back NO Hepatitis C and he did another one a month later and nothing Im 65yrs old geno 3 still F1 fibroscan high VL in mills recently diagnosed copd, i was considering epclusa tx but i think having copd with the treatment would put too much strain on my body, iv heard a side effect of epclusa is shortness of breath and nausea, i already struggle to have few hrs sleep a night, seems to me older you are and how long been infected makes big difference on tx, any thoughts appreciated thanks.
Have gotten sick as always with respiratory infection due to copd had been loosing weight without trying, but lots pain when ate or drank liquids, started drinking 16oz of java monsters 3 or 4 daily just for energy ,which still cause bloating and pain give up went back dr sent me for xray thinking pain was pneumonia.
She did order several blood test for my age group of a 57yr old woman. Asked if wanted tested for hep c said might as well also had ordered ultrasound of liver. This was June 11th meds ordered but today still having trouble with insurance thru Illinois State approve of any meds over a month later Dr has cancelled appt to hear results from blood work and biopsies from esophagus told daughter lungs bad bad feel like I'm being tortured by Dr's and insurance all my efforts to try get treatment started I hit set backs.
Was told hep c 1a is what have only thing I know about what I'm dealing with is this website, no one has explained much of anything to me. Thank God my family is my rock right now or is have nervous breakdown, but still have bad days want feel sorry for myself and just quit Dr's appts all together. Had reschedule hernia operation because told surgeon of hep c diagnosis delayed till she got my tests results I yet not know results my self.
Praying things start going where I m not so confused on where I go from here!!!!! I treated the hepatitis in my pcr is not detected but there are few froblems i have 1 heart burning 2 feet burning 3 weight gain 4 skin diseases what reason???
My name is Elfreda, I was diagnosed with hepatitis B and hepatitis C. I didn't take treatment until when I fell ill and the series of test shows that my liver is already at risk of cirrhosis. Immediately I started taking Silybon tablet. I got cured of hepatitis c in 1month. But I am still positive of hepatitis B because I couldn't afford the treatment,and there is no prove of any plant that can cure it yet.
I really want to be totally free. I think positive attitude counts in the healing process and silybon is the cure. I don't drink and i I contribute that to being Alive today. I got diagnosed with help 4 yrs ago from sharing a needle and 3 yrs ago I was put on hurvani and in 90 days I was told in August that I had Hep C after a routine blood test during a physical. I started Epclusa in February for 12 weeks. After the first month I was tested and told there was no sign of the virus in my blood..
I had some slight headaches during treatment , the worst side effect was some short term memory loss and sometimes confusion. I go back for testing at the end of August and hopefully all is good. I think having a positive attitude really helps so just keep your chin up while going through everything. I was diagnosed with Hep.
C - 2 in late June after having Mono for three weeks. I contracted Hep C from a blood transfusion in from a surgery. I took Mavyret for 8 weeks and am now cured. I had minimal side effects from the Mavyret, but I was tired. I felt the stigma that comes with Hepititus. My hometown GP sent me to http: I believe I received the best care in Northern Calif. What a shock this Hep diagnosis was. I am sorry to read of your struggles but believe that you can be healthy again. Contacted Hep C in At the time told it was Hep B.
Became ill and put on 60 lbs of water weight in I knew that it must be my liver. I decided to ride it out and let it kill me. Until December of I was a heavy alchohol drinker and drug user. I went to the doctor, suffering from Portal Vein Hypertension, to get meds and by the grace of god, she talked me into treatment.
Within 2 months I was on Solvaldi and Ribofiran. It took 6 months to eradicate the Hep C and cure me. BUT the damage that was done to my liver and stomach veins was major and I don't think reversable. I felt really good after the cure for about a year but now I feel not so good. I am sure it is the damage to my liver that is progressing. I will fight this thru with diet and a clean life. Hi I'm 57, female I used Iv' drugs at 18 years, I also crushed strong pain killers, threw Iv' My first tests results told of liver damage, although they had no info about it' 37 years later I have Liver cirrhosis hep c' Geno type 3', I refused treatment, it's not a path I wanted to take, with also having other medical problems I feel it may have caused other problems.
Hello my name is Lynn, I had hep-c gene type 1 for many years and didn't know it until it was almost to late I became very sick suffering an extremely swollen liver throwing up anything I ate. Fever , you name it I went through it..
It waz pure hell. I had a horrible strain pneumonia and the only reason they found it in the hospital was by accident. I had x-rays of my stomach and lower back. My Dr, thank God saw a corner of my lung in the x-ray and immediately kept me there for almost a month..
The pneumonia was not responding very well to a very strong IV antibiotic cocktail.. They kept me very sedated and I don't remember alot of it but finally I was able to go home but my hep-c was at a viral load of well over 7 million and I felt like death was close but I couldn't accept that..
Finally I heard about a cure "Harvoni" I didn't have insurance and was denied disability over and over again.. It felt like a loosing battle.. I was so scared but not ready to give up the fight.. I finally found a place through close friends who I reconnected with on FB and they told me about "Support Path" With the help of my dear sister and Dr We filled out the application and praise God I qualified!!!!!
I got the 3 month course of medicine that normally cost over Yes you heard it right k for this life saving medication I got my 2nd chance at life!!! A miracle for sure.. Oats and Support Path for saving my life I still have a few health issues but no longer have hep-c!!!!!!!! I Really think everyone that is in there mid 40's on up should get tasted just to be on the safe side..
I'm now 55 years old and back when we were young they didn't test blood or blood products for hepatitis at all Please take the test.. It's a very simple test It could save your life.. Thank you for reading my story God bless, Lynn xoxox. Has a bad iddiction. Have my life together now and have custody of 4 year old grandson. I need to be healthy for me to be there for him. I want to live. Update as soon as I know something. Thank all you guys for your stories. It has really help me be serious about this.
Most likely contracted in the Summer of that year. AST was above at diagnosis. It seemed it might clear it because my viral load went very low. But then it spiked a few months later. Then low again, then spiked again.
He decided I should begin treatment with Harvoni in December But first ran some extra blood tests to assess the amount of liver fibrosis because the insurance company would want to know. He was shocked to find I was at Stage 4 final stage in such a short amount of time 1 year.
Apparently, in rare cases, some individuals have extreme rapid progression of liver fibrosis with HCV. Something to do with being over 50, a moderate drinker in the past, fatty liver, and contracting HCV from a person co-infected with HIV.
I was one of those unlucky persons. At the same time, I was switching insurance companies for So, on Jan 1, , I got the ball rolling right away with the new provider letting them know I was Stage 4 and we had to move fast. Found no cirrhosis and cleared me to begin Harvoni in Feb Three weeks into the treatment, I was undetectable for HCV, liver function normal. They decided to also do an Elastography fancy UltraSound to assess the fibrosis again.
They said I was now at Stage 3. I completed treatement one month ago and still undetectable for now. They are going to check again at 3 and 6 months. They will also want to do a yearly UltraSound to look small possibility of liver Cancer. But said if I eat right, don't drink alcohol, my liver should be fine for the rest of my life. I read cases where fibrosis can regress over time, but my Dr said not to count on it.
If you have been diagnosed with Hep C, don't wait. Get in the care of a good Dr quickly. This is serious stuff that will kill you if you put it off. I was told I have hepatitis C by my doctors 3 months ago.
Plus I was testing positive by blood work tuberculosis.. I will be starting treatment for hep c few months.
