I was an IV drug user, never shared needles, but also snorted coke. I had my blood drawn recently but forgot to ask for a Hep test. I was wondering if there is any correlation between complete blood count results and Hepatitis? Just curious if anyone knows. I'm going to get tested for Hepatitis, I was just wondering if there are warning signs.
PS- My CBC was all normal.

Welcome to the forum, Pacman!

No correlation between CBC results and hepatitis. If you had a liver profile done, elevated enzymes would be a sign of liver disease of some sort. You do need a specific test for hep C. The coke snorting would put you at risk if you shared straws, especially if you had a lesion in the nostrils.
