Dec 21, 2007

Completed HEB B tests Results: HBEAG : cutoff 1.00, score 0.157 ,non reactive Anti HBEAG : cutoff 1.00, score 0.344, reactive Does the result mean I Do not have Hep B. If I do, what is the cure process and for how long. Will it recurr once cured. Should I take shots for it as well as for HEP A ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I cannot answer your question because you need further testing of HBsurface antigen and liver function testing. You also need HBV DNA testing, which will give you an idea if you have virus in your blood.
