Hepatitis C antibodies

Learn more

Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect and damage the liver. It is mainly transmitted through sharing needles while injecting drugs, through unprotected sex with an infected person and can also be passed from mother to baby. Many who are infected with the virus are unaware as there are often no noticeable symptoms. However, a chronic hepatitis C infection can cause cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) which can lead to chronic liver disease. Hepatitis C antibodies are produced by the body in response to exposure to the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Testing for these antibodies in the blood helps to identify a hepatitis C infection.

Prepare for your Hepatitis C Blood Test by following these instructions. Do not take biotin supplements for two days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed.

What do HCV antibodies in my blood mean?

Your body will produce HCV antibodies in response to exposure to the hepatitis C virus. Detecting antibodies in your blood indicates a previous HCV infection (even if it was so mild you did not realise you had it).

What can I learn from this HCV test?

This test alone cannot confirm that you still have an active viral infection, only that you were exposed to the virus. If you receive a positive result, we will recommend further testing to investigate further.

What is HCV?

Hepatitis C (HCV) is a virus that can infect and severely damage the liver. The virus can be transmitted through unprotected sex, sharing needles, and from a mother to her unborn baby.
