hep c viral load

Apr 22, 2012

i have recently been told i have hep c and my viral load is at 5 million, is this high ? and is treatment a good idea or should i wait ?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That result is about average. In general treatment is a good idea, but there are other tests and factors that go into a decision of whether to treat HCV or not. It is best to speak to a liver specialist about your results.
