About Our Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Antibody Test

Note: Fasting is not required for this test.

This blood test is used to detect the presence of hepatitis C antibodies to determine whether or not an individual has immunity to the virus.

Hepatitis C is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that mainly affects the liver. Hepatitis C (HCV) is spread by contact with blood or bodily fluids from a person infected with the virus. There is not currently a vaccine/immunization for Hepatitis C.

Often there are no or few symptoms that arise with hepatitis C.


Symptoms that may occur with hepatitis C are:

  • Jaundice (yellowing of the eyes, skin and darkening of urine)
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue

Those at risk of getting hepatitis C are:

  • Drug users who share needles/equipment
  • Persons with HIV
  • Babies who are born to mothers with hepatitis C
  • Individuals who received blood/organs from donors before July of 1992
  • Individuals born between 1945-1965

Avoid infection by:

  • Not sharing needles/drug equipment
  • Using condoms during sex
  • Being cautious when getting tattoos or body piercings (be sure equipment has no one else's blood on it)
