Take the hep-C test
Baby boomers have are five times as likely to be infected
If you were born between the years 1945 and 1965, you are five times more likely to be infected with hepatitis C, a liver disease that, if left untreated, can lead to liver damage, cirrhosis and even cancer. You can have the disease even if you don’t feel sick: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 75 percent of those with the disease don’t know they are infected. Schedule an appointment today for a blood test to determine if you’ve ever been infected; if you have, you must schedule a follow-up to see if you are currently infected.
