HBV Viral Load
Jan 22, 2012
Here are my results:
3178 copies/mL 3,5 log copies/mL 546 UI/mL 2,7 log UI/mL
What does this mean? Do I need to be treated?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Those are all mathematical expressions of the same number, expressed as copy number, international units, and as absolute numbers or numbers on a log10 scale. That would be considered a low HBV viral load in the absence of treatment. Treatment might be indicated, but requires additional testing and you should consult a liver specialist.
