sonicwind, I did the interferon/riba tx for 48 weeks. My vl started at 1.5 million--at week 10 of tx my vl was 1930---at week 20 it was 11,500--at the end of tx it was 890,000. I finished tx aug. of 07. I went to a hepatologist in Oklahoma City in Jan. of this year and did another vl test---it was 449,000. The week before I went I did 15 drops of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement 3 times a day. I do not know if the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement was responsible for the drop or if it just went down because my immune system killed it on its own. I would like to think it was the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement but can't be sure. I never got sick from the MMS but had the big D really bad.
