My hep C rna viral count is 7.0> [<2.5] 10,200,000 iu/ml
I do not understand how the < or > play into results. And, is a 7.0 high or low? That is out of 10, 100, 1000, etc?
Please be detailed and elaborate your reply as I have read other similar question and replies posted and did not understand your (brief)answers.
Thanking you in advance, I am....a hep C dummy.

The number 7 is in log10 units, which is equivalent to 10 million. Or log 6 would be equivalent to 1 million and so on. That level of HCV is what we normally see in chronically infected people.
