|Hep B Blood result
Feb 26, 2005
I just got my blood result back. I don't know what it means: HBsAg Confirmation Positive Hep Be Ag Negative Hep B Core Ab, IgM Negative Hep B Core Ab, Tot Positive Hep Be AB Positive Hep B Surface Ab <3.0 mIU/mL
Does this mean i'm acute or chronic Hep B? Am I a carrier? I'm very confuse.
Response from Dr. McGovern
You are a chronic carrier of hepatitis B. However, I cannot tell you how active your disease is until you have your virus checked with a Hepatitis B DNA. This will let us know if you have virus in your bloodstream.
False +? Does HCV affect Orasure HIV (Blood) Test?
Can I clear Hepc without affecting HIV counts?
