Have regular lab tests - Hepatitis C for Patients
Your provider will use laboratory tests to check your health. Some of these tests will be done soon after you learn you have hepatitis C.
The lab tests look at several things:
- how well your liver is functioning
- how much hepatitis C is in your blood
- other basic body functions (such as kidneys, cholesterol, blood cells and platelets)
For information on specific tests, go to Understanding lab tests.
