hepatitis B surface AB, QL- reactive

Jul 28, 2013

I had a physical exam recently and on the test result the Hepatitis B Surface AB, QL is reactive. My doctor told me nothing to worry about. I want to know what it mean and am I infected and do I need to give attention to it with medicine or shot. Thx!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why this test was obtained, or whether other HBV tests were also ordered. This test result could indicate natural infection or immunity after vaccination.

How can I reduce the pain of Seroconversion?
