Hep test results
Aug 3, 2004

Hello recently

I did a blood test for hepatitis b, the results are for the surface antigen negative and for the surface antibody value 0.0 miu/ml Does this mean that I have hep b?


Response from Dr. Dieterich

No it means you need to get vaccinated for hep B and problably should be tested for hep A as well. DTD
