Can hepC be found in stool?
Jan 30, 2014
Hi Dr. Taylor
I am having a stool sample analysis done because of an unexplained very dark /almost black discoloration that recently started occurring. If I was to allow them to check for hepC, would it be possible for hepC to be detected in the stool?
Response from Dr. Taylor
No we do not test for hep C in the stool.
