Harvoni 4-5 week viral load - Not Detected
« on: April 05, 2017, 12:31:33 pm »
Hello everyone,

I'm about 6 weeks into my treatment and got my 4-5 week viral load lab results this morning. Couldn't be happier. Very few side effects to speak of. The Harvoni High wore off and now I just feel great. Before that every day was a struggle to make it from morning to night. Sleeping as much as possible. My 12 week supply will be done on May 17th.

HCV RNA, QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR Reference Range: <1.18 (Log IU/mL) 

6.45  01/16/2017
 
<1.18 NOT DETECTED 03/24/2017

I see everyone saying undetected. But I assume Not Detected is the same thing. Am I right?

All I know is I feel better than I have in years.

Have a great day everyone!
Start of treatment. Harvoni

Welcome, and CONGRATULATIONS, Username98098. Yes, you are right -- the word choice differs at different labs. Your experience on Harvoni is a lot like mine was. May your journey stay easy.

My lab also uses "not detected" which is what I have in my signature.

Congrats for your on treatment results. Now on to the test that counts the 12 week post treatment test. If you remain not detected at 12 weeks after you complete treatment the medical experts are saying that is tantamount to a cure.

Best of luck to you
