Answer by Mark T
Depending on tests, sometimes no specific treatment is needed at all – in which case neither product is going to be needed.
If your liver tests suggest treatment is required, then pegylated interferon and ribavirin can render the virus undetectable in up to 5 out of 10 persons with genotype 1 and in up to 8 out of 10 persons with genotypes 2 and 3.
Homeopathy however tends to “work” only when the liver is doing ok anyway – and at which point homeopathy will probably do no harm.
If subsequent tests however show that EFFECTIVE treatment is required, you might want to go down the interferon route.
