what will i do now?
Apr 6, 2006

i was tested as HbaSG reactive, so i had to undergo hepa b profiling, results as follows: HBsAG Pt's Count 4,264.00 (reactive); ANTI HBc IgC PT's - .007 (reactive); HBeAg PT's - .129 (Non-reactive); ANTI HBe Pt's - .204 (reactive). What does this number tells me inrelation to my health.

thank you, val

Response from Dr. McGovern

Most likely you are a chronic carrier, but hopefully you are an "inactive" carrier. This can be confirmed with a HBV DNA which will probably show no evidence of virus in your blood. If this is the case, you only need monitoring, and no treatment for hepatitis B.

should i be retested?
hep b post vaccine
