Hi Everyone, I recently went to see my doctor and after my blood work was completed, I found out that I have Hep C. She want me to follow up with a Gastroenterologist. I don’t have any information as yet on viral load etc. The only information I have through lab corp is Hepatitis C virus Ab >11.0 and the normal range being 0.0-0.9. My AST is high, 121 and the normal range is 0-40, My ALT is 109 and the normal range is 0-32. She also ordered more blood test which confirmed that I have Hep c. However I don’t have a copy of those tests.
Does this tell me anything, or does these numbers give any indications on whether I should worry or be concerned? My appointment to see the Gastroenterologist is in 4 weeks, should I try to find another who might be able to get me in earlier? I am trying to understand this new diagnosis.
Would like to say thank you in advance to Anyone who has knowledge on this and replies.
