Lab question
« on: May 11, 2015, 07:32:10 pm »
I had my 1 year SVR labs come up "Undetectable"

My 1.5 year said "detected not quantifiable" but <25 … it was unable to count the virus in my blood after several additional tests…

I know <50 used to be "cured"…. is this new blood test a sign of relapse? My Liver tests were amazingly low… I'm confused… please help.

This is no more than a lay evaluation.. But, the virus, in order to be 'vital', must replicate.. After all that time, to show a quantification of less than the test's LLOQ I would think, means any virions found are non active.
