26 million viral lode

Sep 8, 2007

I just found out that I have HepC and my viral lode is 26 million but my liver enzymes are ok and so is my ALT and AST. What does this high viral lode mean?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your moderately high HCV viral load means you are chronically infected wiht HCV. The viral load level does not necessarily correlate with progression of disease or response to treatment.
