Sep 8, 2009

my relative was test for hcv his anti hcv test was reactive and his value was 0.0532. is he suffering from hepatatis c???? or this is a normal value ????? plz reply me as soon as possible .

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your relative's test was "reactive" this is only part of the testing process. To find out if a person has ongoing virus in their blood, additional testing of HCV RNA is required. Even then, not everyone who has virus in their blood develops liver disease.

Diagnosed today with Hep C
