Response from Dr. Dieterich

It means that you do not have hepatitis B. Glad you used a condom! Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease among both hetero and homosexuals. It is almost entirely preventable with a vaccine.Go get vaccinated and continue to have safe sex! DTD

New drug for HepC
Yellow Jaundice
