my results for hep c

Apr 25, 2010

my lab reads Hep C RNA Quant Viral Load PCR Hep C Qt IU/ml - value 460 Hep C RNA Inter - value Detected Hep C RNA QT - value 2.7 Int Norm Ratio - value 1.0 Protime - value 10.7

What does this mean?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why these tests were ordered, but it appears that the hepatitis c virus test for HCV RNA is positive, likely indicating chronic infection. But you need to speak to your doctor about the interpretation of these tests.
