|Is there a urine test for Hep C?
Nov 11, 2012
my EX partners mother told me he has Hep C. He says he faked it with someone elses urine to get into a study. I don't believe him. Who is telling the truth?
| Response from Dr. Taylor
There is no urine test that can determine if a person has hepatitis C infection. Blood tests are needed.
