Am I a Hep B carrier or not?
Aug 17, 2000

I have tested:

Hep B surface ANTIGEN : non-reactive

Hep B Surface ANTIBODY: positive

Hep B Core Antibody : positive

Am I contagious to others? And will I die of liver disease someday? My liver enzymes are always normal when they're tested.

I thank you in advance

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Dear Worried,

You have had hepatitis B and have recovered. It is unlikely that you will die from hepatitis B, you don't have it! Live a long and happy life! DTD
