Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

An anti-HCV IgM test is a blood test used to detect antibodies against HCV. HCV is a virus that can cause liver cancer. The anti-HCV IgM test is able to identify people who may have been infected with hepatitis C, but have not developed symptoms yet.

The purpose of getting an anti-HCV IgM test is to determine if the person has contracted HCV. The test is used as part of a screening process for HCV, and can help identify people who may be at risk for developing the virus. People who are infected with HCV may not show any signs or symptoms, which means they could be unaware that they have the virus.

However, some general guidelines for when you might want to consider an Anti HCV IgM test include:

  • If you have had an acute hepatitis C infection (a hepatitis C virus that has lasted more than six months) and your liver function tests (LFTs) have been positive for at least two weeks.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of hepatitis C, such as fever, fatigue, jaundice, and diarrhea.
  • If your doctor suspects that you may have contracted hepatitis C from a person who is infected with the virus.

The normal range of Anti HCV IgM Test is typically between 0 and 1000 IU/ml.

First, it is important to remember that the anti HCV IgM test is not 100% accurate and can sometimes give false positive results. This means that a person could actually have hepatitis C virus infection without having any signs or symptoms of the virus. Therefore, it is important to always consult with your doctor if you are considering taking this type of test. Additionally, you should avoid any potential stressors or activity that could cause irritation or inflammation of the skin, eyes or nose right before taking the test. Finally, be sure to drink plenty of water before and after taking the test so that your urine doesn't become diluted.

There is no evidence that fasting is required before an anti HCV IgM test.

Yes, home sample collection is available for the Anti HCV IgM Test.
