Hi,

You just need a simple HCV-antibody test. Should this be positive you can be treated with the latest anti-HCV medication called Sofosbuvir. It clears 90% of all patients off the virus within 3 months. Tell this your family doctor or specialist. This endless testing must have an end and treatment has to be started.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Alexander Davis, General & Family Physician
