hipitis b

May 30, 2004

my 17 yr. old daughter has hepatitis B should i be tested also .how do you get this please help me

Response from Dr. Young

Hepatitis B can be transmitted from mother to child (as well as through blood products, shared needles and occasionally, sexually). I can't tell you how your daughter contracted HBV, but if in doubt, I'd have your doctor run routine screening tests.

Good luck, BY
