Hep B doctors results Vs. Internet research
Oct 24, 2001

Hi, I have a question to ask. when looking at Hep B results. HBsAG is negative; HbsAB is negative; Hbc, IgG&M is negative; Hbc, Igm is negative. Does this mean one is a carrier and contagious?

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

No,this means you have not been infected with any of the viruses for B and C hepatitis.You may consider to be vaccinated for Hep.B ,as you do not have any protection,if you are at risk.

Hep C
Giving Blood
