JImbo you are a little unclear on exactly what they are counting in your blood, I think I have an idea but until you can be a little more specific it's hard to help. First question is did you test positive for hep c, next question is if you tested positive for hep c did they do another test called a viral load, if you can answer these questions and try to be more clear with your questions, I will be more than happy to try and help you figure this out.

Ok jimbo after doing a little research I found what I was looking for in some of your other post, just for the record you do have a virus in your blood but it is not considered a blood disorder. This is what I gather, you are hep c positive, genotype 1a and you have a viral load of 6 million. Your question was is this bad, it is just getting in to the high range which is 6 to 25 million, but don't let that worry you as it has no bearing what so ever on how much liver damage you may have from hep c. The next step for you is to go ahead and do the sonogram and then you should get a liver biopsy to know exactly how much liver damage you have. From there you will have treatment options but we won't get in to that for now. I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis but you are in the right place for info. Hang in there.
