    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I have been a heavy drinker since I was 16. I'm 27 now, and after a recent binge that ended me up in the hospital, I was tested and told I have Hepatitis A, B, and C... all three!! How rare is this? Are they all curable if I stop drinking and abusing my body? What medicine/treatment should I be looking for? And is there anything specific I should ask the doctor? Anything else, like pop, certain foods that I should avoid? Anyone who knows anything about this... I would greatly appreciate what you have to say. I need help! And I need answers! Please... I am clueless.

    You need an ultrasound, MRI, and viral load counts, avoid medications and foods difficult for your liver, like processed and fast food as well as Tylenol. I'm not sure how rare it is but that is very young for all three, I would get retested.
