By Matthew Perrone

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health officials are warning doctors and patients that two hepatitis C drugs from AbbVie can cause life-threatening liver injury in patients with advanced forms of the disease.

    I am happy today to also testify I was totally cured of my Hepatitis
    C. I have lived with Hepatitis C for over 7 years. The thing so affected my
    system that even all part of my body where getting too bad. I tried to look for
    all possible solution just to get rid of this Hepatitis C, but could not see
    any. My doctors says nothing can be done except God himself intervene for me.
    So I began to pray, and hope in God to help cure this disease of mine. Some
    months ago, I saw some testimonies here in the internet people rejoicing on how
    they were cure of their various diseases by a herbal doctor called Uwadia
    Amenifo. So I asked them for his contact so that I can contact him and also see
    if there is any herbal luck for me to get cured. After I contacted him, he
    assured me that he can cure me of my Hepatitis C and said to me that he have
    cured some persons before, so he told me what to do, and we made necessary
    arrangement. He prepared the herbal mixture, and sent it to me here in my
    country so I started to take it. And behold the herbs worked for me, and today
    I am proud to say I am cured and totally free from Hepatitis C. And now I can
    enjoy my wife to the fullest. Please I want you all here to help me say big
    thanks to Doctor Uwadia Amenifo who God really use to cure me. I promise him that if I am cured, I will tell
    the world about him and his powerful herbs, and that’s exactly what I am doing
    now. So please if you have any disease and or virus relating to Hepatitis A,B
    or C or the like. Please I recommend you to this powerful and great herbal
    doctor, Doctor Uwadia Amenifo. His contact details are as follows: his email is
    [email protected] and his phone number is +2349052015874. If you
    email or call him just tell him you got his contact from me Henry Fredrick.

      Henry, I am sorry to tell you that there is NO herbal medicines that put Hep C in remission. And know you are not “cured” until this is in remission for years. PLEASE go get checked and have blood drawn every six months or so by a gastroenterologist that deals with Hepatitis C.
      I have had Hepatitis C for 39 years, read about everything that’s been written about it and learned there are ruthless people who prey on Hep C patients and take money from us. Some things help our symptoms, but, when the liver tests come back, the virus is still there. Please, take care and keep tabs on yours.
