Q&A With Robert S. Brown Jr. From Weill Cornell Medical College: Alternative and Complementary Medicine In Treating Hepatitis C and Weighing the Costs of Treatment

While alternative and complimentary medicine make their way closer to the mainstream there are still some areas of concern with using them while treating hepatitis C. There have also been questions raised about the costs associated with using new medications to treat the disease.

Even as patients adapt alternative and complementary medicine in other parts of their overall health there is concern that these steps could work against the overall treatment picture for patients with hepatitis C.

Medications to treat hepatitis C are making the condition treatable if not curable in many cases. However, one obstacle in the process remains the cost which can make it prohibitive to patients who need it most. However, while it is an issue, it is not insurmountable for future treatments.
