Response from Dr. Young
Your tests indicate the presence of the hepatitis C virus- this level isn't particularly high.
As for your "shape", the HCV viral load only tells us how much virus is present. To know the health of your liver, blood tests and tests (either a biopsy or Fibroscan) about the presence of liver fibrosis are needed.
