Lab results

Nov 24, 2007

Hello Doctor,

During a recent blood transfusion, I was tested possitive for HbsAg. Here are the subsequest test results Antibody to Hepatitis B Core Antigen ( IgM) - Negative Hepatitis B e antigen - Positive Antibody to Hepatitis B e Antigen - Positive

My ultrasound and LFT showed normal results.

Doctor recommended no treatment except LFT every six months. But, I'm basically, destroyed by this event in my life.

Could this be a Acute HB infection?

Where am I in the disease cycle?

Do I stand ANY chance of clearing this virus completely?

Any other suggestion apart from what my doctor has suggested?

Thanks for all the help

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This could be acute infection, but you need to clarify this with your doctor.
