Maybe false positive: Or the lab could have switched your blood with someone else's blood. You may want to go to reputable lab like quest or bioreference, but not labcorp and have it rechecked. ...Read more
Hepatitis c is a virus that replicates (makes copies of itself) in the human liver. People can be infected by exposure to even very small amounts of blood. Over 20 to 40 years it can cause scarring of the liver, and severe scarring is called cirrhosis. People can be tested for exposure with an antibody test. If that is positive, they need a test for the virus itself ...Read more

HCV log10: 6.448. Reflex to genotype was unable to determine genotype even though there was sufficient HCV RNA?
Hepatitis C virus: Sometimes it's not possible to determine the genotype of this virus, which thus makes the expected response to treatment more uncertain. This is a 'slippery virus' -there are 11 major genotypes (designated 1-11), and many subtypes (a, b, c, etc.) A hepatologist (GI subspecialist) or an ID doctor who works with Hep C patients can help you. You'll need an established relationship for treatment... ...Read more
May be no need.: This is apparently an RNA PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test that determines virus particles, or viral load in the body. This can be negative, but if an immunoblot test was positive, it would mean that you had an infection with hepatitis c and it was cleared. If the immunoblot was negative, then you never had an infection, and if you had an immunoassay and it was positive, then it was wrong. ...Read more
Viral infection: Hcv is the hepatitis c virus, an important cause of chronic liver disease and some cancers. Rna is ribonucleic acid, a chemical similar to dna. Some viruses, including hcv, use RNA as their genetic material instead of dna. For patients infected with hcv, a blood test for hvc RNA is a measure of "viral load", how much virus they are carrying. This can be used to measure progress of therapy. ...Read more
Hi, i'm hcv+ genotype3, RNA pcr(quantitative) is 1730256 iu/ml, is it alarming should I start medicine, my last 2 months lft's r normal please advise.Thnx.
HCV+: Hcv+ genotype3, RNA pcr of 1730256 iu/ml refers to your viral load or how much of the hepatitis virus you're carrying in your blood. Your number is toward the high end of the range. You have normal lft's though. It's more alarming that you're hep c positive and are still having unprotected sex, unless your partner is already infected. An infectious disease doctor can assist with your hep c ?'. ...Read more
I tested neg HCV ab, neg rna"quantitative"pcr 2 times, 6 months apart after exposure, do I still need the"qualitative"cus iam diagnosed with fatty liver?
No: If negative pcr viral load such as heptimax twice over a 6month period after sole exposure then no you don't. ...Read more
If a newborn child from a woman with hepatitis c, do hepatitis C RNA test within 3 months, then will it show if he is infected with hcv?
Generally so: If the mother has hepatitis c, performing a hepatitis c RNA test at 3 months and obtaining viral load will identify whether the infant has acquired hepatitis c from the mother. Tests of liver function should be performed the hepatitisc RNA should be repeated at 6-12 months. New medications are available and interferon Alpha can be used to treat infants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
