Hep C Nomads
HepCNomads are an online group of friendly people that have or had hepatitis C. Some of them have been through a treatment programme and cleared the virus, some have not. Some are supporters or carers of family/friends with the virus. Significantly, they provide a lot of online emotional support from people who understand what it is like to have hepatitis.
It's also an educational forum where people planning on starting treatment can learn about treatment, how to prevent side effects and how to maximise their chances of achieving treatment success. Those not going down the treatment route can learn how to care for their liver.
Nomads are well thought of by The British Liver Trust.
Having browsed the internet and not found a good online support forum for Hep B, I joined Nomads. And was welcomed into the community without question.
