high viral load

Aug 12, 2005

With my extremely high viral count of 38,500,000 (hep c 1b,stage 2)does this high count mean I will go to stage 3 or 4 faster? if not what does this mean? Will I be staying exhausted, weak and ill or get worse? I'm starting 48 wk peg/cop in a month.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The answer of faster progression and very high viral loads is not clear. It is likely though your fatigue is directly related to ongoing high level viral replication. Treatment should definitely help your symptoms.
