have i cleared hep c

Sep 14, 2008

i tested posittive for hep c antibody..however my followup blood work (rna)came back less than 5. and no genoype was found? have i cleared naturally or does less than 5 mean it's still lerking in my blood if so should'nt a genotype register? thanks in advance.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is likely you may have cleared the infection. A genotype test would not be able to be performed unless there was a detectable viral load.

Worried and scared
I don't understand my results.
