Hágase la prueba. Pida tratamiento. ¡Cúrese!
Aqui hay 3 razones por las que debe hacerse la prueba de Hep C:
  • Usted podría tener Hep C, incluso si te sientes bien! Puede tomar 30 años para que usted desarrolle cualquier síntoma. Sin tratamiento, el virus podría causar daños significativos en el hígado, incluyendo cáncer o cirrosis.

  • Si usted tiene Hep C, nuevos tratamientos han mejorado dramáticamente e incluso tienen una tasa de curación de más del 90%! Cuanto antes te hagan la prueba, más rápido podrás obtener tratamiento!

  • Usted está especialmente en riesgo de Hep C si usted nació entre 1945-1965; Si alguna vez ha utilizado drogas intravenosas; O, si recibió una transfusión de sangre antes de 1990.

For clients, family members and the public, current hepatitis C information is vital. Anias Diaz, SLO Hep C Project's Health Counselor, provides current treatment information, is a link to the medical community for the agency and, for clients, and is able to give referrals to physicians, discuss drug side effects and disease progression.
