Your hepatitis A test shows that you don't have new infection. However, to know if you have been exposed before or were immunized before, you will need a IgG test.
Your hepatitis B profile suggests some form of chronic infection. However, to know if it is active or inactive, you need a HBV DNA test to see if you have virus in your blood.
Your HCV test is non-reactive so you do not appear to have been exposed to this virus.
Milk OK? Calf's/chicken liver OK?
