I was recently tested for any possible diseases, and came up REACTIVE for Hep C. When I took the official test, My AFP- TUMOR MKR was 8.9, marked as high. And the HCV RNA PCR QT was 347, in the normal range. What does this mean?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I think you need to have the HCV RNA test repeated to determine whether you have chronic infection or whether you were exposed and have cleared the infection.
