Trial Description: This is a study of insulin and blood sugar in children with chronic hepatitis C. In adults, hepatitis C is associated with diabetes.

Blood will be obtained for study testing when blood is being drawn for other reasons.
Recruitment Info: The patient must be less than 30 years of age, have chronic hepatitis C and not be receiving treatment. Further details are available on request.
