Hepatitis virus
Dec 11, 2014

I am an alcohlic and has fatty liver. Recent test shows that my SGOT is 47, SGPT is 72 IU/L and Serum GGT is 86 IU/L. My HbsAG test is non reactive. Also, my HCV Antibody test is no reactive. What does this mean.

Response from Dr. Taylor

You do not have chronic hepatitis B infection. This is good news. Ask your doctor about getting vaccinated for this infection. Getting hepatitis B on top of fatty liver and alcoholism can make you very sick.

The negative hepatitis C test means that you were not exposed recently to this infection. Talk with your doctor about how to reduce the chance of catching this infection.

All best to you.
