12 week after treatment test results
hello! I had to create a new username and password because I forgot my old one. My olde username was Cherrera1, or something like that. But I am confused with my 12 week after treatment test results. I got generic hep c harvoni thanks to fixhepc . I saw Dr. Freeman online to get my prescription around November 2019. Before treatment my ALT and AST were very high and my vital load was almost 6 million. Fast forward to one month after starting treatment i did the vital load test. This was in january 2020. At the lab place where I did my test for vital load it showed undetectable <15. Fast forward to May 12, 2020, which is 12 weeks after the end of treatment I do another vital load test in the same laboratory place. They give test results through ones online log in account of that lab. So my first test results in January 2020 showed <15, now that same tesr shows >11. The exact same test on the same date now changed. And the test I just did in May 12, 2020 ,that's the 12 weeks after treatment also shows >11. It seems that they are now using a lower cut off level. And my Alt and SAT shows that they are good. I didn't do a AST and ALT one month after starting treatment but I did do it before. I did it one month after treatment.My AST on November 2019 was 66. On May 12 2020 my AST is 16. It shows big improvement and my ALT in November 2019 was 99. And in May 12, 2020, which is 12 weeks after treatment my ALT is 12. Those 2 tests I took in November before treatment were necessary for me to get prescription from Dr. Freeman. So I am confused. I feel good , like never before;my ALT and SAT have greatly improved but my vital load on 12 weeks of treatment shows >11. And the same test I took in January 2020, 1 month after starting treatment at the time was <15 but today
that too changed to >11. I will attack my results. Thanks.
I am the username guero852004. I am replying to my earlier post about being confused about end of treatment. It turns out I am undetectable. The test I was confused off were the antibody test. I found the vital load test in the online laboratory log in account and my vital load in measurements for both the January 2020 test,which is one month after starting treatment and the one 12 weeks after treatment are <1.18 IU/ML both say undetectable. I am cured wow. Thank you so much.
Yes, you are cured.
The antibody test >11 just says you have antibodies because you were once infected. That will fall slowly over time.
The PCR test of < 15 done May 12, 2020 proves the infection is gone.
