Very easy.: These days, hepatitis C treatment has been revolutionized. The newer treatments often involves one pill per day, have very few side effects, and have a very high cure rate! They are expensive, but are usually covered by insurance. It is certainly worth looking into, given the long-term prognosis of untreated hepatitis C. Good luck.
