Ida Bigge Hitte: What are your problems?
As you may know, hep C positive people in Australia are entitled to one free course of antiretroviral treatment. In order to qualify for free hep C treatment with combination therapy, there are several criteria patients must fulfill: you must be over 18 years of age; you must have tested positive to hep C; you must have active hep C (tested with a PCR test); you must have a liver function test which indicates liver disease and/or damage (i.e. raised ALT levels); you must not previously have received free treatment; you must not be pregnant/ breast feeding or have a partner pregnant to you; and you must agree to use contraception with your partner, with both partners taking precautions to prevent pregnancy.
