Hepatitis C Antibody Blood Tests

The Hepatitis C Antibodies test is a blood test that checks for the presence of antibodies in your blood that are produced in response to the Hepatitis C virus. 

This test is used to determine if you have been infected with the Hepatitis C virus at some point in the past.

Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C virus, and it can lead to serious liver damage if left untreated. The antibodies test is important because many people with Hepatitis C do not have any symptoms, so they may not know they are infected. By detecting the presence of antibodies, the test can help identify if someone has been exposed to the virus and may need further testing or treatment.

It's important to note that a positive result on the antibodies test does not necessarily mean you currently have Hepatitis C, but it does indicate past exposure to the virus. 

If the antibodies test is positive, further testing may be needed to determine if the virus is still present in your body.
