I am 40 years old. I was diagnosed with hepatitis C before 16 years while donating blood. No allopathy treatment was taken till last month. My liver function tests are monitored regularly. Most of the time, the result will be elevated levels of SGOT and SGPT of 200 and 300 respectively. But, it did not affect me in any way. My appetite is very normal and I am a pure vegetarian. In my recent test, I was diagnosed with genotype 1 and the maximum viral load was 12 lakhs. I started on treatment of SOF+LDV. Followed by that, viral load checked after 7 days and 30 days showed not detectable. Also, for the first time my LFT came back completely normal with no elevated level of any enzyme. Most of the research suggests that 8 weeks treatment is fine, if the reports are normal. Should I complete 12 weeks or stop after 8 weeks of treatment? Please advise.
