Response from Dr. McGovern

I am not certain if I understand your results either because within your question you have written: "hbs,ag, non reactive, hbs ag,reactive"....

If you meant "hbs, ag, reactive", this would fit in with some of your other tests and would suggest hepatitis B. If this is your first test for HBV, you will want to repeat it to see if you have chronic infection, which is defined by having these serologies over six months. You will also want to check a HBV DNA test to see if you have virus in your blood. That would mean active infection; if the test is negative, then you may have inactive infection.
