Question about hepatitis b
Mar 16, 2013
Good evening, i just want to ask if i'm infected with acute hepatitis b or chronic hepatitis b if the blood test shows hbsag (reactive), anti-hbs (nonreactive), hbeag (reactive) and anti-hbe (nonreactive). thank you
Response from Dr. Taylor
From these results it is not possible to distinguish between acute and chronic hepatitis B. The sAg does indicate an active infection. Did you have any other tests done? Do you have prior results to compare with?
