my viral load blood work today, greater
than 2,000,000 IU/ml, my pervious test on 10/25/2001
was greater than 850,000 IU/ml.
I just can't seem to get an exact number from my doctor. It's
very frustrating, it's impossible to tell if the treatment
is having an effect on my viral load from these two tests.
On 10/25/2001 my ALT was 61 IU/L and AST 47 IU/L in my new
blood work the ALT was 14 IU/L and AST 35 IU/L which is normal
and I'm happy about that.
5 1/2 months since I started your program. Do you know the
name of the test that gives the exact viral load, the doctor
said anything over 2,000,000 they don't give exact numbers,
is that true? I'd really like to know what that number is.
I see viral
load tests every day with exact numbers from 100 to over one
hundred and ten million. You doctor is just not with it. PCR
HCV RNA (viral load) Quantative.
That is what is written on my prescriptions. I know others get
that same prescription and get a range.

I have talked to 1000s of people who are very frustrated by
this same problem caused by the lack of educated doctors.
