Hep C Test result S/Co Ratio - 0.1
Ok, So I'm not real sure what to make of the test results I got back for my yearly check up.
This is how it reads:
Hep A - Negative
Hep B - Negative
Hep C Ab - 0.1 s/co ratio

The nurse tells me it's negative but didn't seem to be real sure of herself.  My question, why wouldn't it read "negative"?  Does the 0.1 s/co ratio mean that I have a little of the anti body?  Does everyone have the antibody?

SO confused.

That's an INCREDIBLY low s/co ratio. Sounds like random noise to me. 10:1 is considered a pretty "solid" ratio - that's 100 times greater than yours.

Rest easy my friend, as others have pointed out.

You have posted on an old thread, not used since 2010.

I suggest you copy your question (post), go to the top of the thread and select the green 'Ask a Question' and paste it there so you have a better chance of people seeing it and responding.

P. S., I, personally, do not know of ANY homeopathic treatments which cure hepc.
