In brief: Hep C and your Heart

Hepatitis C does not usually affect your heart, however, some of the medications used to treat it can cause some cardiac issues.
Any systemic illness can cause heart issues because of the demands of being sick put on your body. So you should make sure that you are eating and drinking healthy products. If you continue to have issues, talk to your regular doctor, or see your cardiologist.
