Test Results

May 6, 2012

Trying to understand lab work Hepatitis c Quantitation is 7,560&HCV log10 is 3,879 what do these numbers tell you about your viral load?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is a very low HCV viral load. You don't indicate why this test was obtained, and whether HCV treatment has been given. Those two numbers mean the same thing and are different ways mathematically to express the same number.

HIV and Hepatitis B
