Discussions that mention rebetron

Liver & Pancreas Disorders board


The only thing that I have read about that as far as herbal that actually helps with Cirrosis and liver problems, is Milk Thistle. My husband had Hep C, and has some degree of Cirrosis as a result. Milk Thistle is supposed to revjuvinate the liver. I gave it to him for a while, but he is free of the Hep C now, so I no longer give that to him.

We were fortunate that I have insurance and he went thru a year of Rebetron therapy which put him into remission. That was five years ago, and he is still clear. I praise God for it working for him! He had been on Intron A therapy only twice, and it did nothing for him (except make him feel bad).

One very important thing, is absolutely no alcohol! His doctor told him that drinking was like throwing gasoline in a flame, it made it so much worse! You have to be careful of some medications also.

Good luck, my heart goes out to you and your family!
