Is Nonreactive HBsAg
Oct 13, 2010

I recently tested positive for Herpes 1and 2 and also Tested for Hepatitis. My results wer Hepatitis B Surface AB 54 mIU/mL. What does that mean?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You are protected from Hepatitis B....You either got a vaccine in the past or you were infected in the past and cleared your infection. The only way to tell the difference is to get a test for core antibodies. If negative, you were vaccinated.

Can u help me with my hep results
Lab result. please advice on what to do? ;(
