Monitor your health
Once you have been diagnosed with hepatitis C, you need to pay closer attention to your health than you did before.
You can keep track of your health in two ways. First, listen to what your body is telling you, and be on the alert for signs that something isn't right. Note any change in your health--good or bad. Know when you should contact your doctor.
Second, have regular lab tests done. Lab tests often can detect signs of illness before you have any noticeable symptoms.
