Sorry I took so long to get back. I just commented on someone who made a similar statement, I'm going to copy and paste my response and it should give you some idea of what was going on at the time this video was made. Pasted response: At the time of the making of this video insurance companies were restricting these drugs to people with F3 or F4 METAVIR scores. The people on the drugs were much sicker, today anyone get the drugs without restriction. The AASLD treatment guidelines did end up changing to reflect what I had spoke of in the video, Vikeria is no longer a recommend treatment for those with cirrhosis. At the time in order to qualify for the drug you had to have evident cirrhosis by a test such as a liver biopsy. It was readily obvious to anyone around at the time that Viekira just wasn't as good for the sicker patients, but they were the only ones that the insurance companies would let get the drug. For those who were not as sick it did not seem to affect them as much hence the apple example I gave. Your experience does not at all surprise me and I am glad to hear you are doing well!

That's great! A lot of people get very bad anemia from it and have to take things like Procrit to compensate.

"Contra indications". not "contradictions" two different meanings. Just thought you might like to know cos your video is excellent

Yea I noticed that, I usually make these at 6 in the morning before I go to work. One video I almost said creatine instead of creatinine, caught myself at the last second.
