I tested positive for hepatitis c antibodies in jan and my s/co was 4.85, wasn't told to get additional test and think anything of it. Dec I had to be tested for work and of course I'm positive for the antibodies again and this time my signal to cut off is 4.04. My (AST ALT) are normal (19 20). I am so terrified being that I work in the medical field I will have to give up my dream job if my PCR RNA come back positive. What's the likely hood of a a false-positive? I don't do drugs ever. I have tattoos and I've donated blood, so I would like to think I'm a low risk person..
