 hep c help please

My father was diagnosed with hep c a couple of years ago.  He was an IV drug
user in the 70s.  I never thought that I could be at risk for this disease, but
I always wondered if my mother could be at risk through {*filter*} contact with my
dad.  Recently, I had my wisdom teeth removed and I had {*filter*} work taken.  Both
my sgpt and sgot values were elevated.  Now I'm really scared.  I know that
elevations in these labs indicate liver disease.  I have yet to see a doctor,
but I am planning on it.  I would appreciate any info anyone can give me.  I'm
also wondering if these elevated labs could mean nothing???  wishful thinking
maybe, but I'm really worried and just hoping.  Please help, if u have any info
for me.  Thanks in advance.  kayla

By all means Kayla, have yourself tested for HepC antibodies.
There is probably nothing to worry about but it is best to be tested to be
safe.

There are too many reasons for increased lfts to list here. don't panic.  
passing hepc with social contact is almost non existent.  But do tested.
It is a good idea for everyone.

IHMO,
Nan

Kayla, I have learned that many things can make your enzymes high,
{*filter*} use, vapors from solvents, {*filter*}, the list goes on, and some
people have above normal levels all the time, but are free of
hepatitis,i.e. damage to liver. My doctor says that {*filter*} transmission
is nearly impossible. Nearly? Good luck,tim


If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
