Hepa b profile

Jul 1, 2007

HbsAg-positive Anti Hbs-negative HBeAg-negative Anti-HBe-positive Anti HBcIgG-negative Anti HAVIgM-negative

I've been diagnosed last 2005. I want to know if I'm chronic or acute carrier. My doctor told me that I'm not infectious and my virus is inactive. I want to know if she told me the true interpretation of my hepa profile.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Not sure I could answer that question, given those lab results. I suggest you go back to your doctor and ask why the surface antigen test remains positive and what it means for the virus to be inactive versus having gotten rid of the infection.
