I recently took a blood test this were my results:
Hep A IgG Non Reactive
Hep A IgM Non Reactive
Hep B Core IgG Non Reactive
Hep Bs Ag REACTIVE
Hep Bs Ab Q.N.S. to RECHECK
Hep C Ab Non Reactive
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???? PLEASE HELP...
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
The list that you give means that you don't have any evidence of hepatitis A or C. You have circulating hepatitis B virus surface antigen (Ag)- this means that the HBV virus is in your blood. In keeping with this, you have not developed the antibodies (hep B core) that correlate to protective immunity against HBV.
Hope this helps. BY
