Mar 29, 2011

Since 2007 I have been underoing homeo medicine for hysnophilia and aso titier -positive diseases. Recently when my blood tested absag-positive. abseag-negative, abcab-positive, my ultra sound scan report normal study. My wife and children are hbsag-negetive. There is any chaces the medicine used to ASO titier and hysnophilia turned the false postive of hbsag ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

With a reactive core antibody and antigen, I think this test is a true positive.

I recommend HBV DNA testing and liver function tests to know if you have virus in your blood. If not, you have inactive disease. If positive, you need further follow-up (ie, a liver biopsy if your liver function tests are abnormal ) to determine if you need treatment.
