That is a low reading part way through treatment- I did 24 weeks, I wasn't undetected until 18 weeks on treatment, I still cleared, it is not at all unusual to get your result of . Looks to me, patient not doctor, like you are on track really well.
Taking your meds with some food? Keeping hydrated and feeling ok?

Thanks for the info Hazel. I've not had any side effects from the medication except for some days slight fatigue and a couple of days I got a headache, but that's not unusual from the norm for me until yesterday I got Tinnitus in my left ear ringing for two days now and I'm not sure that's a side effect but I will need to see a doctor if it continues.
Hi Dr. James, a liver Elastography showed corresponding metavir fibrosis score: F2 + some F3. I am Genotype 1a. Platelets were 207, AST 28 in 2019 but as high as 64 in 2016 and ALT was 50 before starting treatment and was ALT was 122 in 2016. I've likely had the virus for 20-30 years. I have not missed a dose I'm currently starting week 7 of the 12 Epclusa week course. I read that the HCV RNA levels detected <15 were the lowest on the scale and I'm not sure what the Quantitative log <1.18 means. Thanks for the honest info though it's disheartening that I'm in a 20% group still detected, I'm hopeful the next test in Feb will show undetected.
