Hepa B Screen Test Result
Jan 31, 2010

Hi doc,

I have undergone a hepatitis panel last Dec. 10, 2004 and here are the results:

Hepatitis B Surface Antigen - 5.690 - Reactive (confirmed) Antibody to Hepatitis B Surface Antigen - 0.100 -Nonreactive IgM Antibody to Hepatitis A Virus - 0.630 - Nonreactive IgM Antibody to Hepatitis B Core Antigen - 0.180-Nonreactive Hepatitis Be Antigen - 0.320 - Nonreactive Antibody to Hepatitis Be Antigen - 0.871-Reactive(confirmed) Antibody to Hepatitis C - 0.650 - Nonreactive

With these results, my doctor asked me to undergo ALT test, and my result was 36(range from 0-66).

The other day, January 25, 2010, I have undergone a HBsAg(Hepa B) test screening and my result was NON-REACTIVE.

Can you please explain to me what is happening with me?

Thank you and more power!

Response from Dr. McGovern

Perhaps you were recently infected and have now cleared your infection. I would get further testing in about 3 months.
