Dec 2, 2012

sir in my HVC RNA report it written as Impression: Sapmle is Positive for HCV RNA and showing 879,639 IU/ml=3,518,556 COPIES/ml Please help me to understand this data and how critical is the condition? my age is 56 yrs.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why the test was obtained. That HCV viral load level is about average and likely indicates chronic infection with HCV. You should discuss these results with your physician and whether other blood tests or scans are necessary to evaluate your liver.
