My results confirmation
Oct 12, 2007

Recently I had Hep B blood test done in two different hopitals and i was told diferent things. My blood test: Hep B surface antigen- positive, Hep B e antigen - not detected, Hep B e Antibody - reactive, Hep B core total antibody- positive, Hep B surface ag confirmatory - reactive. I was told that i must have Hep B before and I am carrier now, I have got natural immunity and I am not infecious. It was opinion of first hospital the second one told me exactly the same only that I might be infectious.They took another blood sample for DNA test. I would be gratefull if you could go throught my resuts and email me your interpretation.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would also recommend a HBV DNA test. This confirm whether you have virus in your blood or not.

Your sexual partner should also be vaccinated.
