Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.I do not see any blood test result attached.However liver scan looks reassuring--the liver tissue looks normal homogenous. No signs of cirrhosis.Interferons are about 80-90% successful in clearing up hepatitis C virus in combination with Ribavirin in 24 to 48 weeks depending on virus genotype.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:

But there is an issue with cholesterol I guess ! Does this require medication or just follow a certain diet program and the ranges would be better ?
LDL is considered mildly high HDL is also high protective.If she does not have heart disease or diabetes, then her cholesterol numbers do not need any medication.Can be controlled diet and exercise.Best wishes
