HBsAG Screen

Jul 5, 2009

The HBsAg Screen test came back as positive. The HBeAg came back negative. The HBV Real-Time PCR Quant was <29 IU/ml and <168 copies/ml. Am I a just a carrier or is it possible that the HBsAg was a false positive. My ALT's have ranged from 128-142. Do I even have Hep B?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is likely you are a carrier. You need to discuss your results with a liver specialist.
