I am almost five months pregnant, my doc calls me to tell me that I tested positive for Hep B. And that I have the virus. I am a med lab tech and when I went over my labs they didnt make sense to me, can you interpret them. HBsAg screen: negative Hep BE Ag: negative Hep B Core Ab, IgM: negative Hep B Core Ab, Tot: negative Hep Be Ab: negative Hep B Surface Ab: >100
Response from Dr. Holodniy
These lab results only indicate evidence of HBV surface antibodies or likely immunity. You must ask your doctor what he means by tested positive for HBV.
