Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a virus that infects your liver. You may carry the virus but not show any symptoms for 20 to 30 years. Hepatitis C is only one of several hepatitis viruses. Hepatitis C spreads through contact with infected blood. Some people experience flu-like symptoms a few weeks after their initial infection but most people do not have any symptoms. As such, most people feel fine until liver problems develop. Symptoms you may experience include:

  • Fatigue
  • Jaundice from liver failure
  • Muscle and joint pains

New recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention call for screening all Baby Boomers for hepatitis C. Two-thirds of people who have the disease are not aware that they do. Waiting until symptoms appear can result in serious damage to your liver including cirrhosis and the need for a liver transplant.

At Indiana University Health, our expert team of gastroenterologists uses the latest techniques to discover undiagnosed hepatitis C in patients and treat them with the newest therapies. Our goal is to intervene before problems develop. 

If you are at risk for hepatitis C or know that you are infected with the virus, you can access the many advances in diagnostic tests and therapeutic treatments now available through IU Health. Our involvement in clinical trials for hepatitis C means we are changing the way we offer therapy to our patients.

Through our affiliation with the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Division of Gastroenterology/Hepatology we give you access to one of the most innovative hepatitis C programs in the Midwest. We actively continue to research liver diseases. In many cases, new liver scanning techniques and medicines will offer high cure rates within a significantly shorter period of time and remove the need for a liver biopsy.
