It could: It could still be low because some people have difficulty with absorption through the stomach and need to get shots to bypass it so you should still get the level checked. The bad news is that if you have a sensory motor neuropathy the list of causes is enormous and hepatitis c is on that list. The treatment to reverse it is removal of the offending agent which may or may not be possible
