Hep C Liver Panel

Jul 6, 2013

The only liver panel function that is out of range is the AST, which is 68 and the ALT which is 73. There are two separate values for the same HCV RNA QN PCR. Why is that? How serious are these numbers?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Those are minimally elevated levels of liver enzymes, but you don't indicate what the HCV PCR values were, so it is difficult to assess any significance.
