received a call from E.B. on Saturday March 2, 2002.
me that he and his wife had just received her first blood
test after 4 months on the program I outline in Triumph Over
Hepatitis C. Upon diagnoses her viral load was Greater than
one million (the test that does not tell us much).
was 42 Her ALT was 38. After 4 months Her AST
is 32 Her ALT is 14.
load is Greater than one million. Ernie said the doctor was
furious about receiving that ridicules test again after ordering
the proper test, one with a specific number.
viral load tests that just say greater than one million are
a waste of everyone's time. I suspect some group of people
are making a fortune off of them.
ask for a viral load test with a specific number. If you do
not get it refuse to pay for it. Call your insurance company,
HMO or who ever you use and complain.
