Understanding Hepatitis C
One of the main goals of primary care physicians is to practice preventive medicine: that is, preventing onset of disease, or identifying disease early so as to avoid poor health outcomes in the future. To that end, your doctor may request that you undergo screening tests on a routine basis. You may be familiar with many of these procedures; mammograms, pap smears, prostate exams and colonoscopies all fall under the “screening” umbrella. One of the newer recommended screening tests is a one-time blood test for hepatitis C in patients born between 1945 and 1965. This recommendation -- supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDD), and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force -- is advised for all members of the Baby Boomer generation without regard to risk factors. According to the USPSTF’s findings, 75% of all current Hepatitis C infections are in this age group.
