You don't indicate whether you have had previous HCV viral load tests and what those results were. Usually patients on dialysis get fairly frequent HCV testing. Is this a new positive result? Were you tested before and results were negative? The result likely indicates chronic HCV infection with a very low HCV viral load. I suggest you discuss these results with your kidney doctor and consult with a liver specialist to determine whether HCV treatment is indicated at this time.
