Dr., Are normal ALT levels reliable for confirning lack of acute HCV infection? If so, how long after possible exposure would ALT levels rise above normal if infected?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Virus in the blood precedes any changes in liver function testing....If exposed, viremia usually occurs within weeks.....
