Hepatits C antibodies in test (AGAIN) What to do now?



Hello.



For over 1 year ago i took some blood tests that showed that I was positive for the antibodies for Hepatitis C but no virus.

They then took 2 more blood tests (RIBA included) that showed that i didnt even have the antibodies and the later tests showed no infection (no test has showed any infection).

So according to the RIBA test and the second blood test i never even had the antibodies.



Now, a year later, i took new blood tests, that showed the same thing as the first one i took 1 year ago.



Antibodies for Hepatitis C but no virus, and now they want me to take another more test.

But when I told them that I had taken other tests just a year ago and that it was the same scenario as this one, they told me its up to me if I want to take more tests, cause then to 99% i dont have anything of it.

The test i took just weeks ago showed reactivity in the screening test, that the first test i did a year ago also did, but the RIBA and the other tests I took a year ago showed that i had nothing of it.

The initial antibody test may be reacting to something else, who knows, you don't have HCV

Have a great day
