Dead On Whacko

Subject: Re: [Contact Lloyd] INF hastens liver damage in non responders

You're welcome.  I have participated on some forums wherein you are variously referred to as "dead on" or "whacko trying to sell something."  :-)   It is amazing the degree of fear that is raised about true disease, and how trusting and accepting people are of the drugs. 

I ended interferon in 12/08.  My thyroid is still fried, I have psoriasis still and I have arthritis and some degree of cognitive impairment, my liver damage rapidly accelerated to cirrhosis during and immediately after treatment.  I am, however, feeling far far better than I was.  I cannot tell you what a horrible, lonely terrifying experience it was.  Somebody needs to be in jail. 

You have a number of times responded kindly to my inquiries. I thank you very much for doing so.  I occasionally have sent you stuff like the below and will likely continue to do so. 

Stay well!
Yours,
Jeff

Nonresponders to Interferon-based Treatment of HCV Exhibit an Increased Long-Term Hazard of Cirrhosis Compared to Never Treated

The long-term consequences of failed interferon-alpha based hepatitis C treatment on liver morbidity and survival have not been fully explored. We performed retrospective analyses to assess long-term clinical outcomes among treated and untreated patients with hepatitis C virus in two independent cohorts from a United States Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a University Teaching Hospital. Eligible patients underwent liver biopsy during consideration for interferon-alpha based treatment between 1992 and 2007.

I have been denied Long term disability because they cannot prove that I have pain

from Barbara via Ask Lloyd
I was diagnosed with Hep C in 2006, did the treatment of Ribavirin and strongest dose of Interferon, I have cleared the virus, although since the treatment I have extreme muscle pain and some joint pain, I tried for a few years to continue to work, but am unable to, due to pain, my memory is terrible, I take my pain meds and fall asleep in the office. I have been denied Long term disability because they cannot prove that I have pain, xrays, blood work cannot show my pain level. Do you know of anyone that has been able to get disability from this most horrible problem. I am not the person I used to be.... I was always the most active person, and now my life is completely different.

Your Question for Lloyd

First I had west nile then they discovered hep c. I took interferon for only two maybe three months an my hep c is gone that\'s been 2 years.

But since that time, my hypothyroidism is giving me fits, constipation, miagraines and fatigue to mention a few.

This is crazy any suggestions. I'm looking for a diet and herbs to solve my problems, the Dr's can\'t seem to, what do you suggest?

Dear Lloyd, I had two rounds of interferon and the second one had ribaviron added and I have had three years `clear` of hep c showing on test, but my quality of life is impaired and I have problems which I thought were caused by two very dramatic bereavements in my life. Now I  think my mental health problems  inc cognitive and memory problems are from interferon. I am pretty scared and also disability don`t wish to pay me anymore because I don`t test positive to hep C anymore. Could you let me have some info I could use about my symptoms. The local doctor is being very helpful but the Hepatitis C clinic is not, they say I should go back to work after 20 years of hep c and 14 being so ill I could scarcely get out of bed.

Thank you. Marian
