Hep B Core Ab - Pos, Hep A Ab, Total - Pos, Hep B "e" Ab - Pos, Hep B "e" Ag - Neg, HBV DNA, Qt, Interp - Neg, HBV DNA, Copies <100 copies/ML

Am I infectious? Do I need any treatment?

Thank you so much for your help in advance!

Response from Dr. McGovern

It appears that you have been exposed to Hepatitis B in the past but cleared the infection, since your surface antigen is nonreactive.

It appears that you are protected from hepatitis A - either you were vaccinated or you already had the infection and cleared it.

i have a test but i dont know the meaning og this.
