User avatar Hi jason,
Hepatits C is transmitted primarily by exposure to infected human blood. Here is an informative weblink for you to view if you would like to do so.

In my opinion the abnormalities in your labwork would be suggestiive of another cause.
Sincerely,

thank you for you advice I am going to have another blood test done , and have them test me for hep c anyway . I don't think that i have it as never had abnormal tests before and my blood sugar was really high I also have been on alot of pills for my sugar and nueropathy in my legs so i would imagine my liver is pretty overworked ! I let you know the results of the test thanks again
