I have a lab test result I was wondering if you could explain a little. It says the test done was "HCV QN by DNA" And that the result was "16741" I assume that the 16741 is my viral load level. if so, how would this be rated in a low/high scale?

Thank you,

Response from Dr. Holodniy

If that is in absolute copy numbers or international units, that would be considered a very low level.
