"if you are a candidate for one of the new treatments to try to eliminate hepatitis c, please consider trying." how do I know if I m candidate?

Need to see a doctor. That's an excellent question. There are many factors that go into determining whether or not you're candidate for the newer treatments for hcv- the "genotype", other illnesses you may have, ability to follow through with taking medications, and others. Therefore, it's important for you to discuss these points with your doctor.
