First Blood Test Result
« on: December 01, 2015, 07:33:13 am »
Just got this after my first round of blood work since starting Harvoni treatment October 23rd.

Dear​ xxxxxxxxx,

I​ ​hope​ ​this​ ​letter​ ​finds​ ​you​ ​well.

The​ ​hepatitis​ ​C​ ​level​ ​is​ ​almost​ ​zero​ ​so​ ​significant​ ​improvement,​ ​hopefully​ ​on​ ​the​ ​next​ ​lab​ ​test,​ ​it​ ​will​ ​be​ ​undetectable.

Congratulations, bricksnsticks! Your doctor's office has an interesting way of getting back to you. Of course, you have a right to ask for a copy of the actual lab results. Chances are, those will include liver enzymes such as ALT and AST which are also most likely significantly improved.

HCV genotype 1a

Before treatment:
Viral Load 9,490,582
FibroScan 19.5 kPa [F4]
ALT 262
AST 217
ALP 183

Most recent:
