Hello, I am new to this page. Can anyone translate my viral load? It was done in Canada. It says 1.97E+4. Is this high? Or low?

Any information about this would be helpful. Thank you.

Dear Teacher.pet,

1.97E+4 = 1.97 x 10^4 = 1.97 x 10000 = 19700.

This is low if is before treatment. Still a bit high if you have started treatment.
Diagnosed Jan 2015: GT3, A0+F0/F1. Fatigue + Brain-Fog.
Started Sof+Dac from fixHepC 10-Nov-2015. NO sides.
Pre-Tx: AST 82, ALT 133, Viral Load 1 900 000.
Week4: AST 47, ALT 58. VL < 15 (unquantifiable).
Week12 (EOT): AST 30, ALT 26, VL UND
Week16 (EOT+4): AST 32, ALT 28, GGT 24, VL UND
Week28 (EOT+16): AST 26, ALT 22, GGT 24, VL UND
Ever grateful to Dr James.

Relapsed somewhere after all that... Bummer!

Jan 2018: VL 63 000 (still GT3).

With a load below 6 million the observation is the 8 weeks treatment is enough. I would probably still do 12 myself but it is a good prognostic indicator for you.
YMMV
