Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination and request a blood test to determine if you have hepatitis C.
After confirming the diagnosis, it will be necessary to undergo tests to evaluate liver damage, being the most common:
- Transient elastography.
- Liver biopsy.
Pharmacological treatment focuses on the consumption of antivirals, whose function is to eliminate the virus from your body and prevent the damage from increasing.
When the pathology is very advanced and the liver is already dysfunctional, the only option is a liver transplant.
