Does anyone have input on viral load?

I was diagnosed about 2 years ago. Was a total shock. I have been denied treatment 3 times thru my insurance. I recently had another viral load done and it was 1620000. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this means. I have a terrible GI doc that doesn’t explain anything, I’ve tried Google but can’t find what I’m looking for. Any input would be appreciated.

    Hey Slweans1025! Viral load is really just an indicator of confirmation that you have chronic Hep C. The higher the number does not have anything to do with damage to your liver… so breathe. I’m wondering, however, if you need some assistance with those denial letters and navigation to care. Please give a toll free call to help4hep at 977-435-7443 and the folks there can give you/send you loads of information and also try to help you connect with folks who are amazing with denial/appeal letters and advice! Please try not to get over frustrated (ha) and DO CALL, ok friend? (Randy, Community Moderator)
