Am I Chronic or Acute HepaB carrier?
May 6, 2012
I just received my Hepatitis Profile from a nearby Diagnostic Center.
TEST | PATIENT'S ABS | CUT OFF VALUE | RESULT
HBsAg Elisa | 4.309 | 0.105 | REACTIVE Anti-HBs | 0.019 | 0.105 | NON-REACTIVE HbeAG | 3.186 | 0.105 REACTIVE Anti-Hbe | 2.346 | 0.816 | NON-REACTIVE Anti-HBc G | 0.017 | 0.434 | REACTIVE Anti-HBc M | 0.024 | 0.105 | NON-REACTIVE
My question is: Am I Chronic or Acute HepaB carrier?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Likely chronic but you should have repeat testing in about six months to confirm. In the meantime, you should also request testing of HBV DNA levels.
