Who should take the test?

Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV). HCV is more commonly transmitted through needles or blood exposure and only rarely spread through sexual intercourse. The infection is usually asymptomatic. When symptoms do occur, they can include fatigue, nausea, muscle aches or jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes).

For some people, Hepatitis C is a short-term illness but for 70%-85% of people who become infected, Hepatitis C becomes a long-term, chronic infection. Chronic Hepatitis C is a serious disease that can result in long-term health problems, 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?

You collect the sample (blood spot), send it back to us and we will provide you with information about your Hepatitis C status. If you test positive, you should talk to a doctor about treatment options to avoid passing an infection to a partner.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

After you get tested, it’s important for you to find out the result of your test so that you can talk to a doctor about treatment options if Hepatitis C was detected. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by phone at (703) 722 6067 (08:00am – 11:30am EST) or mail at contact@verisana.com. Please note that we reserve the right to collaborate with certified partner laboratories.

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

How commen is hepatitis C in the United States?

In the U.S., more than 3 million people are living with chronic hepatitis C, often without even knowing they are infected.
