Re: Geno types
Nov 16, 2009
I don't know whom your asking the question but I hope this helps. Genotype is key and anyone who has/had Hep C should know their genotype. It is also possible to have more than one genotype. The genotype is already formed when passed on. It is blood to blood only. Blood tranfusons, sharing dirty needles, needle sticks, open sores or cuts coming in contact with blood sources, extra rough sex as it would have had to draw blood from both partners and so on. Hep C Genotypes have one thing in common, they are a retro-virus like no other. Contracted or exposed is the same thing with Hep C. Either you were exposed to an infected blood source that came in contact with your blood or you exposed your blood to another infected blood source. I knew a nurse that was bitten by an infected person (it broke the skin) and ended up contracting Hep C from the person. I advise anyone who had a blood transfusion in 1985 or before to get tested for Hep C because it was not until 1986 that they could screen blood for Hep C. If you are somehow exposed twice to the virus, thank the Gods if it was the same genoype. There are genotypes in genotypes. It is the ability of the virus to mutate that makes it so hard to treat. When it happened to me I was glued to the computer and downloading everything and anything I could. I understand you quandary and somehow wish I could make it go away for you and everyone else. Meet it head on and ask lots of questions. Dei Gratia
