I don't quite understand. Especially the hep c virus interpretation page which states 8.73 range in red while less than one is desired.

One page states not detected then that other page with the interpretation in red? I don't get it.

Hi Gary, welcome to the forum. It does seem confusing, hopefully Dr James Freeman who is a Hep C expert will give his opinion soon.

Hello GaryC123,

The first page is referring to your Hep C Antibody level. This is positive because you have been exposed to Hep C. A person not exposed would be <1, you have been, you have a value >1 because you have been exposed to Hep C.

The second page is the Hep C PCR RNA test and the <15 level indicates the virus is not detectable. This is good, it means you do not currently have any Hep C virus in your body.

Either you have spontaneously cleared the virus (25% of people do), you are on treatment, or you are in the post-treatment SVR period.
YMMV
