it in perspective, a person who contracts HCV might have an ALT that
is that high during the ACUTE phase, but then have it drop down to
more common levels (like 50 - 100), or even normal, during the
chronic phase. I don't see why they would send her home if she was
critical either. If they did, that is CRIMINAL!
