What types of vitamins can I take with Hep-C?

I'm currently taking men's multi-vitamins(without iron). Can I take any additional vitamins like Vitamin-C e.t.c.? Do they have a certain vitamin that's helpful for people with Hep-C? Any answers would be appreciated.

My doctor at my local hospital said that they're waiting on new medication to come out. I've been waiting for 5 months now. Has anyone else heard about this?

hey saint, i take milk thistle and curcumin, both are excellent for liver repair. stay away from animal protein which is hard on the liver.

Re: What types of vitamins can I take with Hep-C?

hey, it's not just vitamins, but the food you eat also. you could do a search and find out what's good and bad for hep c. here is a small list for you, hope it helps. i have geno 1a, with a viral load of 10 mil. i will try foods and vitamins before i take the poisons the drs want to give you!!

Foods to consider:
Dandelion greens, burdock root, mustard greens, black radish, apples and saffron, watercress, beets, parsley, artichokes, cherries, grapefruit, parsnips, endive, garlic, onion, chicory, carob, horseradish, kumquats, limes, quinces, grapes. Include artichokes in the diet, they protect the liver.
Lemon juice mixed with water, upon rising in the morning 30 minutes before eating and a teaspoon of olive oil (virgin cold pressed) has been shown to stimulate the production of bile.

Foods to avoid:
Saturated fats, meat, alcohol, hot sauces, spicy foods, fried foods, fatty foods, rich foods, salty foods, cow's milk and other dairy products, white bread, refined foods, processed foods, sugar and sweets, phlegm-forming foods, meat, ice cream, shellfish, coffee, caffeine, unpurified water and other foods that don't agree with you.
Trans-fatty acids, hydrogenated oils (margarine, vegetable shortenings, imitation butter spreads, most commercial peanut butters) oxidized fats (deep fried foods, fast food, ghee, barbecued meats)
Refined, simple carbohydrates: sucrose, white flour, processed foods.
