Dear Oscar, I wish I were posting something other than what I am going to say here but I think I need to let people know what my experience has been thus far with BHT. As you will recall, I was diagnosed with HEP C last May. My liver enzymes were elevated and had been for quite awhile and my viral load was at 3,000,000. I immediately started dosing with milk thistle, turmeric, various vitamins and 200mg bht on an empty stomach. Within one month, my liver enzymes were normal but my viral load went up 1 million to 4,000,000. I upped my dosage to 350mg of BHT and included 600mg of R-alpha lipoic acid (real important to state this is "real" r-alpha lipoic acid) not the stuff off the shelf. I continued this therapy for the past 8 months and decided to test myself around the 9th month. I increased the BHT to 700 mg for approximately one month before I tested. My liver enzymes continue to be normal but my viral load is now at 12,000,000. Needless to say, I am very disappointed and bummed out because I truly believed this was going to work. I have genotype 2 and now feel the next step is to go through the treatment, if they'll do it instead of waiting until I have liver damage. Wish me luck and for the rest of you, given the circumstances, I would still give the bht a try if I had to do it all over again.
My blood work after taking BHT on an empty stomach and 700 mg a day: ast 53 HIGH alt 93 HIGH hep c Virus 11.0 HIGH after 10 weeks of bht all my counts are HIGHER I will have to go back on Interferon, ribaviran and tela prevera.
