VL=<12



Husband started triple therapy with Inc. on Sept. 30, 2011
Lab results from week 18, Jan. 30, 2012
Hematocrit is good=37
WBC is good=2.7
VL at week 4 was <47, at week 8 was UND, at week 12 was UND, but at week 18 is <12.
NP and Hepatologist said too early to know why virus is now detectable and to do more labs in 4 weeks.
Is this a viral breakthrough?

increasing Ribavirin



At the end of Week 14, my husband's lab work looks good.  Hematocrit is up a bit to 34, and white blood count is still good = 2.34.  NP advised him to increase his Ribavirin from 800 mg (dose reduction 2 1/2 weeks ago) back up to regular dose 1200 mg.  Will increase tomorrow.  Other than fatigue, he is feeling fairly well.
