      Your HCV load is still high and it keeps fluctuating so a liltle or more doesnt make any difference.
      Your liver enzymes are only twice high , which isnt too bad.
      Lipemic simply means fat in the serum, you have to check your serum lipd levels as well.

      Greetings All,
      I just got back a PCR test and wanting to make sure about the reading, so am
      running it by you all. I know there was something on the list a while back
      about this but I didn't save it and it didn't register in the old long term
      memory area of whatever grey matter I have left.
      It says:

      HCV RNA, QN, PCR, Expanded

      hcv rna, qn, pcr...............................2420000 H ............Less
      than 10000 copies/mL
      hcv rna, pcr .................................... 952000 H.............Less
      than 6000 IU/mL
      ALT .............................................108
      H.............35 or less IU/L

      SAMPLE SLIGHTLY LIPEMIC

      Then it goes on to describe rna in serum plasma bla, bla bla

      Just thought maybe Doc or someone could help me with these questions.

      Q. I have been off treatment now for over one year. They pulled me off after
      six months because my PCR at six months was 600,000 just like it was when I
      started treatment. If I am reading this right my PCR is much lower now. Am I
      reading this right? And if so what does it mean?

      Q. What does Slightly Lipemic mean? And what are the ramifications?

      Thanks you all appreciate the input.

      Bob
