not active hepa..
Oct 19, 2008

i have hepa b but my doctor told me that my hepa is not active what does it mean ....does it mean that my hepa is not contagoius...

Response from Dr. McGovern

Inactive carriers can have a positive Hepatitis B surface antigen but no active viremia and normal liver function tests. This can change to active disease so it is important to have serial monitoring over time.

Your household family members and sex partner should be immunized against hepatitis B in case your infection becomes active again.

i tested false positive now what?
pregnant with hiv
