Question about Hepatitis C Antibody test I received
Hello, I know I ask a lot about my girlfriend, but now I asking for me:

I went in to have a Hepatitis C Antibody tets done and this is what was on the paper:

Hepatitis C Ab (IgC): Nonreactive
Signal to Cutoff (Hep C) is 0.06                less than 1.00  ratio


If it is non reactive, why do I have .06 on the tets for the signal to cutoff. Is there some Hepatitis C in my body?

"Is there some Hepatitis C in my body?"

No, it is an antibodies test and can pick up on other things

"If it is non reactive, why do I have .06 on the tets for the signal to cutoff"

You are negative follow the link to see the full test ratio's, what is positive, negative and indeterminate, it is a copy of my positive test, I know it is side ways but just deal with it :)

Hrsepwr thanks for the test

but why would I have .06 on the tets for non reactive. Does that mean that a little Hepatits C was found?

Or maybe that I am at an acute stage and just picked it up recently like a month ago?

No, for 1 it wouldn't be hep c but the antibody and 2 you ARE neg by the antibody test standard

Or maybe that I am at an acute stage and just picked it up recently like a month ago?

And No

I don't have a problem with you asking questions but dude you need to chill out, you are going to worry yourself to death long before anything else could get you

sorry if i seem paranoid, but it just makes me feel bad when i saw .06 under hepatitis c antibody. Even though less than 1.00 is non reactive, i still felt kind of strange seeing a number for hepatitis c.

I thought it would be 0. On my other blood tests there were some 0 answers...

Imagine how I felt when I saw 11.0 and then a RNA PCR that said 14.2 million, your antibody negative and your girl is RNA negative, you can relax and not worry about hep c unless you have a legitimate risk factor on the future

Have a great day

You have added a comment to a 3 year old thread which is likely why the link that was posted is no longer any good I would think.
