Exactly what is Mono? I've never had it before, I am just curious. Why is it called the kissing disease? Can it be deadly? What are symptons of it? If you get mono will it go away?...
How do they test for hepatitis c and what is the treatment for it?
Additional Details No I don't have it (at least I hope not) I was in jail and they stuck me in a cell with a woman who was hiv pos. and had hepititis c. I was already tested on the HIV and that's negative but I'm not sure if they checked for the hepatitis when I went for my usual (every so often) STD testing.
FIRST HEP.C,HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIV.THEY RUN BLOOD WORK TO TEST,THERE IS NO CURE,THEY DO HAVE A DRUG CALLED INFERON THAT YOU INJECT,AND TAKE PILL'S FOR 12 TO 18 MONTH'S THAT CAN BRING THE COUNT DOWN IN SOME PEOPLE.IT IS CONTRACTED BY BODY FLUID JUST LIKE HIV.SO ANYONE CAN CATCH IT AT ANY TIME.
you get a shot, it won't hurt that much. I haven't ever gotten it so i don't know what the trreatment is
why? do you have if you it is ok i hope you get better

your doctor will take blood from you and then get it tested.
It's easily detected from a blood test.The treatment(not a cure)is a series of 3 gamma globulin shots.
Also note that Hapatitis c never leaves the body,but is "contained" by the shots.Those infected can never give blood.

Hep-C requires specialized blood testing. There is a treatment (interferon) via injections along with an oral medication. It's a rough treatment making you feel like you have the flu every day. Depending on your age and how long you've had Hep-C your doctor would recommend if it would be best for you. There is no cure. If you are advanced with the disease, you can get a liver transplant. However, that liver too, will soon be infected. Go to a good Hep-C webside for complete education. Good luck.
