Customer Question

I was found to be Hep. Chronic state. I had an have not any symptoms. I never have been in prison, have no tattoes, never received blood transfusion, am strictly heterosexual, have no multiple sex encounters. However, I was a surgeon between 2002 and 2005 and as every surgeon I had some niddle sticks. Last time I was a blood donor was in 2002 and I wasnot told anything wrong. After that I had no chance to donate blood. The sample I just had was because I am looking for a nw job. The first resul was 12.78 NO EDTA, which I have no clue what that means. The repeat smple showed 4.75 10*6 iu//ml. LOG Viral Load = 6.68.
How I have to interpret thesesult nd what is your advice?

It is a positive test with low viral load.
My advice is that you see a hepatologist after you have this test repeated......
