Hepatitis C lab test in Baton Rouge




Hepatitis C Lab Testing Services

Whether a doctor has suggested that you be tested for Hepatitis C, or you simply want to know more about your own health, we're here to help. This test is available at our labs in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas.


This test is used to detect and diagnose an infection, or to monitor the treatment of the virus.  These tests are commonly recommended by doctors if someone has:

  • Abnormal liver function

  • Symptoms of hepatitis

  • Injected illegal drugs

  • Exposure to someone with HCV

  • Received a blood transfusion before 1992

  • Received an organ transplant before 1992

  • Been on long-term dialysis

  • Been born to a woman who was HCV-positive

The tests include Anti-HCV, HCV RNA, HCV Viral Load, and viral genotyping. Unlike Hepatitis A or B, most people who are recently infected with HCV will either show no symptoms, or show only very mild ones.  Less than a quarter of people with HCV will show symptoms such as jaundice, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, or feeling tired.


Why the test is often suggested:


Hepatitis C can either be considered "acute" or "chronic." Acute means that the viral infection is short-term, usually within six months of someone having been exposed to the virus. And in many cases, Acute Hepatitis C can lead to a chronic infection. And what does that mean?


Chronic Hepatitis C is the long-term form of this virus. It can last for an entire lifetime, and cause major liver problems such as liver cancer, and cirrhosis (liver scarring). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about as many as 85% of people infected with Hepatitis C will eventually develop chronic infection. So the sooner someone is aware of this condition before it's chronic, the better.
