On 12-2-02 I took a hep C antibody test as part of a s.t.d.
did I know hep C was not a sexually transmitted disease! This
back positive!!! I didn't find out till march when I went
back to the docter
for an unrelated problem. The Dr. assured me the test was
99.5% accurate and was certain I had Hep C. A full blood panel
and a Hep C RNA Quant. PCR was ordered. The results came back
one week later. The Dr. looked at my alt-105, and
my ast-45, then read my pcr result and congratulated me on
the fact I only had 200 viremia in my blood!!!
After asking to see the result myself and quickly noticing
the (less than) in front of the 200 I became enraged. The
Dr. quickly decided I was undetected then told me I had fatty
liver. Not trusting this idiot I faxed my results to your
office and you confirmed the PCR read non-detected.You also
suggested I take a RIBA antibody test to confirm the non-detected
Absolutely frustrated with doctors I decided to get
on your program for two months and then get retested.
Today has been two months and these are my results.
two months, march 14 to may 16, I have lost 30 pounds.
My alt went from 105 to 60, my ast went from 45 to 25. My current PCR remained non-detected,
my RIBA antibody test came back negative!!!
The first test I took in December was a false positive!!!
l will in the future always question the advice of a doctor
and always ask
to SEE the results of any test. LLOYD---- Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
