    I am being more pro active this time in my treatment.  In using the trackers this test are listed.  If my doctor is doing these test then they must be important.

Good Luck with your treatment.  I'll say a prayer for you.

Fyi.  A symptom of hepatitis is jaundice, which is a 'yellowing' of your skin and eyes.

Someone with jaundice will have high bilirubin, >3 and low albumin <2 or so.

Your .7 and 3.9 are excellent numbers.

May I ask what your genotype and viral load is?

     Right back at you with the prayers.

I started treatment on May 28 and had my first blood draw one week later.

As of 8/03 I was genotypef1 grade 2 stage II.  
Prior to May 28                                     After first blood draw on 6/3/08

Viral Load: 4,390,000                                 1,730,000
ALT: 48                                                     33
AST: 35                                                    37 or 32 (can't read the doctors writing
Bilirubin: 0.3                                              0.7
Albumin: 3.6                                              3.9

Thanks for asking and how are you holding up?

Do you know how your Hep c was transmitted to you?  Just curious.  If that is none of my business, say so.
