How Should I Prepare for My Appointment?
Receiving a diagnosis of Hepatitis C can be overwhelming. There’s a lot of information to absorb during an appointment, so you may want to consider bringing a family member or friend with you.
In addition, time with your doctor is often brief so it helps to come well prepared. To prepare, try and do the following:
- When you make the appointment, ask if there is anything you need to do before coming in, such as restrict your diet.
- Write down any symptoms you’ve been experiencing, even if you don’t think they’re related to the problem.
- Bring a list of medications you’re currently taking. Include vitamins, supplement, herbs or home remedies.
- Write down important personal information, including issues related to your home life, job or any major stresses.
