is hcv rna quant real time pcr high

Jul 31, 2010

If my hcv rna quant real time pcr is 4240725 and 6.63 is that considered really elevated and cause for concern?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is about an average HCV viral load. A viral load level by itself cannot determine the degree of liver damage or need for treatment. You should consult with a liver specialist about whether other tests are indicated at this time.
