HbSAg Test result

Hi, I got my HbSAg test done and the report reads that " S/n value of Patient : Reactive, 179.94 (MEIA, Axsym)" Please explains this to me. Is it a serious case and what precautions and further measure I should take.

Response from Dr. McGovern

It could mean acute or chronic infection. You will need further HBV testing by your doctor to determine your HBV status.
