no immunity hepatitus b
Nov 11, 2007

I recently received the results of a physical and because my liver enzymes are high I was tested for hep b. The results show no immunity .What does this mean?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You do not have HBV infection.

You are also not "immune" meaning that if you were exposed, you could contract the virus. You should discuss immunization with your physician if you have risk factors for the infection.

You should also have testing for hepatitis A and C.

Donation of body parts if HepC+ ?
hbsag vs. hbv dna
