I was informed a few years ago,I have antibodies,to-for..? Hepatitis C. That is all the info I have. I don't know what it means,as far as how it affects my life,if at all. I also wonder how it may have happened. I am 57 years old,and am wondering if I need to address this in any way.

I HAVE BEEN MARRIED 47 YEARS TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AND MY HUSBAND DOES NOT HAVE HCV.......OUR ADULT DAUGHTERS DO NOT HAVE IT EITHER AND WE SHARED RAZOR TILL I FOUND OUT ABOUT MY HCV IN 1993.......

IF WORRIED GET TESTED AND ASK HER MD...
MY THOUGHT IS ENJOY LIFE HCV DOES NOT MEAN DEAD. MOST HEPPERS DO NOT DIE FROM HCV BUT DIE WITH IT..
