HCV RNA after treatment

Jan 7, 2008

One year ago I completed a 6 month course of treatment for Hep C. The virus cleared my blood 3 months after begining treatment. Today I received a lab result, RNA Quant bDNA with a resule of 1014 and 3.01. Does this mean the virus is back or is there another explination?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Could be the virus is back, or more likely never completely left. The test needs to be repeated and you need to be evaluated by a liver specialist.
