The Cause Of Hepatitis C Examination Results Changes?
In the afternoon, on the 2nd, I did the MCU, and the results were anti-HCV, I was reactive, then on the 3rd I did the anti-HCV check again and the results were non-reactive, because the results changed, on the 16th yesterday I did another anti-HCV check and the results became reactive again, so what solution for me, thanks in advance
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Anti HCV is one of the tests to diagnose the presence of hepatitis C virus in a person's body which can cause hepatitis C. The hepatitis C disease is a disease that attacks the liver, causes infection, inflammation, and in some cases when it does not heal until over 6 months, it can become chronic hepatitis C and tend to be more dangerous.
Regarding your question, we understand your confusion with such fluctuating results, but indeed in the investigation can occur various errors that make the results shown to be invalid. Errors can be started from sampling errors, storage errors of samples, processing errors, to misinterpretation of sample results.
So in our opinion what you should do now is to check yourself with an internist or hepatologist for a more detailed examination, involving liver function tests, and maybe ultrasound and so on. Because after all the MCU is only a thorough examination carried out to detect and increase alertness. Whether or not you get treatment will be determined from your doctor's assessment, not only based on anti-HCV results, but also from history collection, physical examination, and support from other investigations. So, hopefully answering your question.
