the following is the result of my hepa profile: hepa b surface antigen-non reactive, anti HBs- non reactive, anti HBC- non reactive, HBE- non reactive, HBE Antigin- non Reactive, Anti HAV- reactive. Please let me know if i have hepa A or B, or anything that I have to worry about.
Response from Dr. McGovern
If your tests are "non-reactive" that basically means "negative"
Your hepatitis A test indicates either prior infection or prior immunization. Either way, you won't get HAV infection if you are exposed in the future. Also, HAV does NOT cause chronic liver disease.
