The CDC recommends a Hepatitis C test if you:

  • Were born between 1945 and 1965
  • Are currently injecting drugs or have in the past
  • Have HIV infection or underlying conditions at risk of contracting Hepatitis C
  • Received blood transfusions or organ transplants
  • Have been exposed to blood that may contain the virus
  • Children born to HCV-positive women

Hepatitis C is a potentially life-threatening disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. It is contracted through blood-to-blood contact with an infected person which can happen in a variety of different ways. Hepatitis C often has no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage so you may not be aware that you have the disease.

The reason that people born between 1945–1965 have high rates of hepatitis C is not completely understood. The CDC Website reports that most baby boomers are believed to have become infected in the 1960s through the 1980s when transmission of hepatitis C was highest.

 

The good news is that all it takes is a blood test to find out if you have Hepatitis C and according to the FDA most cases of Hepatitis C can be cured with a daily combination of pills over a period of just 12 weeks.
