Hepatitis
Jan 17, 2007

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
