    Question VIRAL LOAD QUESTION PLEASE READ

    I'm sorry to keep bothering everyone with all these questions about viral load. After asking about my wifes now I am confused about my own. The test my gastro did on 10/22/01 said the following:

    Hepatitis C Viral RNA, Quantitative PCR

    HCV RNA, PCR, QUANT 1000000 COPIES/ML 1000

    HCV RNA, PCR, QUANT 600000 IU/ML 600

    SO ? What is my viral load ? I thought they told me a million copies but after your answers on my wifes & looking at her lab work my numbers look higher than hers & I was told that hers were 1.2 million copies ( I'm totally confused but am trying to explain it to my wife.

    Hers again were as follows:

    HCV RNA, QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR 3321000 COPIES/ML

    HCV RNA, QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR 1230000 IU/ML

    Thanks in advance for you replys & your prayers.

    Howdy DRSLMD-
    Hiya Bud, hope things are looking up,
    If I am reading these correctly it reads the first-
    #1 - 1000000 -thats one million
    The second which is much better at-
    #2 - 600000 - thats six hundred thousand, much better.
    -there are two different measures of readings there.
    and the wifes second [ damn and sorry to hear that too] is
    #2 - 1230000 - thats one million, two hundred,thirty thousand,which is the second reading

    which both are not high compared to some here at 15 million or higher.

    will be getting a hold of you, at your website.

    Be Positive, Be Well+
