HCV By FT-PCR 526000 is my number
Then result in Log IU/ml=5.72 Dynamic range of this assay is 10iu/ml to 50,000,000 iu/ml (1.00 to 7.70 log IU/ml) Testing was done by PCR method using Taqman HCv analyte specific reagents. Can you tell me if what this means, and what I should do next. I have not insurance and no doctor. Are these numbers considered high and infectious. I need all information possible.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
It means you have chronic HCV infection. That viral load is on the low side for HCV infection. You are considered infectious. There is probably nothing to do immediately. But treatment could be considered in the future.
