Details
Who should take the test?

Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV). HCV is primarily transmitted through needles or blood exposure and is rarely spread through sexual intercourse. In most cases, the infection does not produce noticeable symptoms. However, when symptoms do manifest, they may include fatigue, nausea, muscle aches, or jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes).

While Hepatitis C may be a short-term illness for some individuals, it becomes a long-term, chronic infection in 70%-85% of those who become infected. Chronic Hepatitis C is a severe condition that can lead to lasting health complications, and in some cases, even death.

People at increased risk for having Hepatitis C are:

  • Current or former injection drug users
  • Recipients of clotting factor concentrates made before 1987
  • Recipients of blood transfusions or solid organ transplants prior to July 1992
  • People with HIV infection
  • Children born to mothers infected with the hepatitis C virus
  • People who are incarcerated
  • People who use intranasal drugs
  • People who received body piercing or tattoos done with non-sterile instruments
How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

How is my privacy protected?

Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. Both we and our partner laboratories (which may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.

You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties. Additionally, all samples will be disposed of after analysis. Both our Verisana portal for registering kits and receiving results as well as our CLIA-certified partner laboratories are fully HIPAA-compliant.

    Got the testkit within a few days and results via email around a two week after I sent my samples. Worth the price.

How is Hepatitis C primarily transmitted?

In the United States, over 3 million individuals are currently living with chronic hepatitis C, many of whom may be unaware of their infection.
