Response from Dr. Holodniy
In terms of HCV viral load, that is on the low side. The 5.87 just indicates the same number expressed as a logarithm of the absolute number. You would need to have further evaluation by a liver specialist to know if there is any significant liver damage or if HCV treatment was required.
