    Dear doctors

    I want to hear your advice concerning my father
    he is suffering from hepatitis C virus for along time
    Today he did PCR and found the results 826.000

    while in the result paper , it was divided into 3 parts
    below 200.000 : low
    from 200.000 to 1.000.000 moderate
    more than 1.000.0000 high

    What is the prognosis
    and what about lifespan ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hepatitis C viral load is a term pertaining to the amount of the hepatitis type C virus present in a given amount of bodily fluid, typically blood. The viral amounts are usually calculated in viral load equivalents per milliliter (eq/ml). If the hepatitis C virus is present, this is called “positive,” while showing no virus present is called “negative.” Positive results are gauged on a progressive scale, with general ratings from “low” to “very high.”

    There is no unanimous agreement on what constitutes a low or high reading. A general guideline for hepatitis C viral load, however, is that a reading of 200,000 to 1,000,000 eq/ml is considered low. A reading between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 eq/ml is considered a medium viral load, while a reading from 5,000,000 to 25,000,000 eq/ml is considered high, and anything above 25,000,000 eq/ml is considered very high. An amount showing less than 100 eq/ml is considered negligible, or hepatitis C negative.

    Hepatitis C viral load is mainly determined by two methods, a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test or a branched-chain deoxyribonucleic acid (bDNA) test. The PCR test is sensitive and can measure minute amounts — less than 100 eq/ml of blood volume — of virus present. The bDNA test measures moderate to very high amounts of virus present in the blood.
