fluctuation of HEP B antibody level

Sep 17, 2005

I have two lab tests done on HEP B antibody between an one-month interval. The first test gave 4.6 and the 2nd one gave 12.1. Given this was not an error, what does this mean? Should I follow with a 3rd test? I have vaccination done 5 years ago.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what the actual hepatitis b test was.

no change in CD4 or VL
Viral Breakthrough=Resistance to all drugs currently taking?
