Huh?? HCV RNA, Quantitative Real Time PCR

Aug 19, 2012

I've had Hepatitis C for 40 years. I just received the follow lab results. Can you tell me what these results mean? HCA RNA, Quantitative Real Time PCR H 1200000 Ref.Range <43 HCV RNA, Quantitative Real Time PCR H 6.08 Ref.Range <1.63 My genotype is 2b

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The HCV viral load is 1.2 million copies/mL. The other value, 6.08, means the same number in log base 10 units. Your viral load is around average for someone with HCV infection.

Can candidiasis appear when on meds for long time?
Am I still in the 'acute infection' stage?
