What are the signs of chronic hepatitis C?

ANSWER

If you don’t get diagnosed and treated, you could have the disease for years and not know it. Doctors call this the chronic form, because it lasts a long time.

Signs that your liver isn’t working like it should include:

  • Dark yellow urine
  • Yellowish eyes and skin
