|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
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
