Is HCV borderline dangerous
Sep 13, 2009
I was tested for HCV for the first time and the result was Borderline 1.8. 1-8 was mentioned as borderline. Please guide if this value means that virus is not reactive? If not, is it's presence dangerous? What are the conditions in which it becomes reactive.
Response from Dr. McGovern
If you got a result that is indeterminate I would discuss further testing with your doctor. If you are at risk, I would proceed with a HCV RNA. If you are not at risk, I would proceed with a RIBA.
