|isolated hepatitis B core antibody
Jul 8, 2008
I checked for hepatitis b which showed HbSAg negative,HbSab negative but presence of core antibody. HCV negative, HIV negative; ALT> 65 IU;GGT & ALP also elevated. Please,what is wrong with me and what can I do
Response from Dr. McGovern
Nothing clearly wrong. Would check the core test to see if it is core IgM or IgG since IgM would mean recent infection. If this is the case, your surface antibody should become positive.
