Hello
You are having raised liver enzymes and your HCV antibody test is positive which means you are suffering from hepatitis infection.
Treatment of hepatitis c is very important because in 80% of cases the infection becomes chronic and,if untreated,may lead to liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.
People generally tend to get relaxed,with this disease,as it does not cause any problem for many decades.
Consult a Gastroenterologist and get the proper treatment as 40 to 80 % cases become alright with the treatment.
Treatment is generally done with pegylated interferon alpha and ribavirin for a period of 6 months to 12 months
Thanks
