I've been TRYING to research this dread disease, but I keep getting hung-up (in my understanding) when the writer starts going into all the details of viral counts, medications, etc. - all the technical gobbletygook.
The whole geno-type thing just leaves me VERY
!!!! I understand the differences between between geno-types 1, 2, and 3. But, now I see it is FURTHER separated by geno-type 1a & 1b. This is where my confusion begins, as my doc never mentioned there was a division of the type 1. I can't seem to find anything that addresses this - probably using the wrong search phrases. The only thing I DID find was a very brief mention that type 1b responds to treatment less well than type 1a. Of course, I have 1b!
So, anything that might help me get a handle on what all this means is VERY appreciated. Yeah, yeah, I COULD wait until the doc comes thru with the info, but that's not looking very hopeful.
