HBsAg 317.51 S/N REACTIVE Anti Hbe_2 0.40 S/CO REACTIVE HBe_2 0.24 S/CO NONREACTIVE HCV_3 0.61 S/CO NONREACTIVE

Thank you for your help

Response from Dr. McGovern

For your hepatitis B, you have evidence of HBsAg which means you have chronic infection. However, I don't know if it is active without testing your HBV DNA - a measure of active virus in your bloodstream.

Your HCV antibody is nonreactive which means that you were not infected with Hepatitis C in the past.
