HBsAG result

Mar 25, 2012

Hello Doctor, I volunteered to donate blood at the Red Cross but i resulted positive in HBsAG, negative in Anti HCV, negative in ALT. I went on and did further analysis on HBsAG, and the results were 5771 with a reference range of 0.9-1. I am a female and 25 years old. Can you please interpret these results because i cannot find any info based on these values. Thank you,

This likely means you have chronic HBV infection. You need to consult with a liver specialist to determine whether additional testing or treatment is indicated at this time.
