HCV-RNA BY REAL TIME PCR
Sep 30, 2012
Could you please inform me the result of these tests: * HVC: positive (3386 IU/ML) & the detection limit of assay is 12. * serum creatinine: 0.65 * SGPT (ALT): 25 * T.S.H (ultra sensitive): 1.78 * Free T3: 2.3 * Free T4: 1.2
Thanks in advance.

You don't indicate why the HCV test was obtained. That result indicates a very low positive level of HCV virus in the blood, and likely indicates a chronic infection with HCV. You should see a liver specialist as to whether further tests or treatment is indicated at this time.
