I have hep c hcv ab w rflx to riba is 11 high, hcv rna-pcr is 2,689,660 or 6.4, what's this mean

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It appears you have chronic HCV infection. That RNA or HCV viral load level is about average for people who are infected. The value is expressed in two ways that mean the same thing. The first is 2.68 million IU/mL (or copies per mL of blood) and 6.4 Log10 IU/mL, which is just another mathematical way of saying 2.68 million.
