Hepatitis B test
Sep 26, 2003
Can you explain my hepatitis test results from the red cross.
I had a negative test for B surface antigen (HBsAg EIA, but I was positive to anibodies to Hep B core antigen (anti- HBc, IgG & IgM)
Dose this mean I have had a recent infection and I am clearing the virus or I have already cleared it???
Do I need additonal testing??
The only symptom I had was dark tea colord urine In late may of 2003. Not sure how I aquired the virus???
Should I see my primay care physicain, I feel fine and have a physical scheduled for Nov. Should I see the Doc. before Nov??? AM I infecteous to others around me.
I hope you will answer my question soon.

This means you had HBV infection, you are no longer infectious for HBV and you have cleared the infection and have immunity.
