Response from Dr. Holodniy
Those values represent a very low HCV viral load. 2180 and 3.34 are are the same number expressed in different mathematical terms. The average HCV viral load in someone with chronic HCV infection is around 1-3 million. Many things in addition to HCV viral load level, must be factored in to determine what the extent of liver damage there may be with this infection. Additional blood tests and scans may be required to determine whether treatment is required at this point.
