Smooth muscle question
My latest blood tests show negative on F-Actin (Smooth Muscle) with a 13. 19 units or less are negatives. Now, can one have Hep C and test negative on the smooth muscle?

I haven't been able to talk with my Dr for another week or so until my appt. But I'm just trying to figure out some info while I wait.

Thanks

Yes, you can have Hep C and test neg. for smooth muscle.

Not all people with Hep C test pos. on smooth muscle tests.

I know it's hard to wait on answers, I hope you get some answers when you see your doctor.

Keep us posted.
