Book Description

January 28, 2005
A comprehensive, empathetic guide for anyone suffering from this serious liver disease
Approximately 4 million Americans and 170 million people worldwide suffer from hepatitis C, a viral liver disease that is treatable but not curable. It accounts for more than 40 percent of U.S. liver disease deaths-about 8,000 to 10,000 people annually-and is the most common reason for liver transplantation. This compassionate guide explains how hepatitis C affects the liver and the body and provides solid advice on today's treatment options-from drugs (and their side effects) to transplants and alternative therapies-as well as tips on dealing with the emotional and financial burdens the disease brings with it.
Nina L Paul, PhD (New York, NY) earned her doctorate in infectious disease epidemiology and immunology from Yale University. She has researched viruses (human immunodeficiency virus and others) and the immune system.

5.0 out of 5 stars loving someone with Hep C April 17, 2005
Format:Paperback
This book is so informative ! Information at your fingertips that you can just pick up and scan and read bits a pieces at time. When you have a loved one living with this you feel helpless and a little lost and this book really helps you see how to understand what the person with this disease is living with each day. Comprehensive basic information that you can ask intelegent questions, because without this knowledge you don't even know what to ask or how to be there to help and be more compationate. No one wants to say 'I wish I had known more about this so I could have helped"... after the fact.

Thank you, Nina Paul for caring enough to do this !

Now we know .

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for writing this book!!! March 26, 2005
By C. H.
Format:Paperback
Recently, I discovered that a close relative of mine had Hepatitis C. I knew nothing about the disease at the time, so I bought the 'Dummies' book since I read several of the other 'Dummies' books in the past and found them helpful. This book was perfect! I now understand what this person is going through from both a physical and emotional point of view. I learned about the treatment of the disease and now know how to help her. Everything I needed to help her live with Hep C is in one place. Thank you for writing the book!!!!!!! I recommend it to anyone who is in any way affected by this disease and needs to know everything there is.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource March 30, 2005
Format:Paperback
I panicked when I first learned that my close friend was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Thanks to this book, I am better informed of the disease, its treatment(s), and what to expect. As with other "Dummies" books, it is concise, informative, and easy to understand. I highly recommend it!

I gave this a five because I really like the Dummies books. I've read other books, so the info isnt really new to me. This book though is still resourceful. A good first step about learning about HCV.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Overview of Hepatitis C January 23, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for those wanting an overview of hepatitis C. Paul covers many aspects of living with hepatitis C. The book is a bit out-of-date, as it was written before the latest hepatitis C medications were approved. Medical treatment is discussed briefly in one chapter, a subject that could have been discussed more. Also, the book does not specifically address how to manage hepatitis C treatment. However, I would recommend this as a good starter book for beginners looking for information about hepatitis C.
