Ask Your Questions About-HCV! of our Hepatitis Experts:
Is there any connection between HCV and peripheral nervous system damage in co-infected patients?
Dr. Chung writes--
This is a tough one, as many factors can contribute to neuropathy in coinfected persons, including antiretroviral medications, diabetes, and hcv itself through a related condition known as cryoglobulinemia.
This should be checked, and if positive, some thought should be given to treatment for HCV/cryoglobulinemia.. RC
