Hello!

Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Anti-HCV examination is done to assess whether there is a Hepatitis C virus in the body. The examination detects the presence of antibodies to the Hepatitis C virus with reactive results if it is positive for the virus and non-reactive. Unfortunately this examination can not detect whether a new viral infection (acute) or has occurred in the past / some time before (chronic).

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that attacks the liver and causes inflammation. Therefore liver enzymes (SGOT and SGPT) will increase along with the response of infection or inflammation that occurs. This infection can enter the body through sexual contact, blood transfusions, medical and non-medical procedures from tools that are not sterile and contain the virus, the use of syringes that are used repeatedly, tattoos, transmission from mother to child or consumables such as razor blades etc. There is no vaccination for Hepatitis C. In addition, often someone who has this virus does not show significant symptoms. Generally patients do not know that they have been exposed to the virus because the development of the virus to cause symptoms requires quite a long time.

Because the examination of anti-HCV antibodies can not make the type of infection is acute or chronic, the examination that is highly recommended for Hepatitis C is with quantitative HCV RNA, with the PCR method that can determine the amount of virus in the body. This examination can also confirm the presence of viruses and infections that are still active.
Delays in examinations can be done depending on the patient's readiness. The earlier the examination is carried out, the better because management can also be given immediately.

Therefore, you should follow your doctor's advice to immediately carry out a qualitative HCV examination and consult further with the specialist in internal medicine who has expertise in hepatology to obtain complete information and appropriate treatment.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
