TO TEST FOR HEP C, START BY MAKING AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR DOCTOR, NURSE OR CLINIC.

Once you have been cured through treatment, there is no need to have another antibody test ever again. This is because even after cure, the hep C antibody test result will show positive, probably for as long as you live. The antibody test does not mean you have hep C, just that you have been exposed to hep C. It is the PCR test which shows whether you have hep C or not. After cure from treatments, your hep C will not come back, unless you get re-infected by a new exposure to hep C through blood-to-blood contact with someone else with hep C or if you have cirrhosis or liver disease that needs to be monitored by your doctor or specialist.
