HCV help
Dec 22, 2010

i have come to know i am infected acute HCV because before 3 month i am negative but yesterday my result came on border line what it mean and what i do forther

Response from Dr. McGovern

Borderline is not a true positive. You will need HCV RNA testing soon to see if you have virus in your blood. If so, you will need careful follow-up over the next 12 weeks to see if you clear the virus on your own.

If not, you need to consider treatment since the chance of clearance will be extremely high.

Liver Ultrasound and ALT normal always !
