Test Results what do they mean

Jul 24, 2011

I just received test results showing HCV RNA Qn 40,541,000 does that mean my viral load is very high?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, that would be considered a high HCV viral load and likely indicates chronic HCV infection. I would consult with a liver specialist to determine what other tests are required to determine the extent of liver damage and whether HCV treatment is indicated at this time.

Undetected VL but CD4 fluctuates?
want to know about my cd4 changes
