Reston Hospital Center answeredChronic hepatitis C can be life-threatening if left undiagnosed and untreated. Severe liver disorders including permanent scarring of the liver can occur, leading to cirrhosis. Advanced liver failure results in end-stage liver disease. Complications during liver transplant can occur and should be discussed with your doctor. However, the good news is that treatments for chronic hepatitis C have improved dramatically recently. With the right combination of medications, cure rates now exceed 90% in many groups.
