Response from Dr. McGovern
If I understand you correctly, your HCV antibody is reactive. If you have no risk for HCV then it could be a false positive. You would need a RIBA test to sort this out. If you are at risk for HCV you will want to get a viral load test (HCV RNA) to determine if you have active infection.
