Last time, I took blood test and my doctor said me, my liver is not normal, elevated liver enzymes and she want me to took blood test again for " Hepatitis Panel". Today, I got my lab results. It said: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen--- Nonreact If my liver dose not have hapatitis, " my liver is not normal" means? Hepatitis B Core IgM--- Nonreact Hepatitis A IgM--- Nonreact Hepatitis C Antibody--- Nonreact [ Ref Range- Nonreact] but this results are " Acute Hepatitis Profile". How is difference between "Profile" and "Panel"? and my results means OK? I'm so worry about my liver. ( my English isnot good, sorry about that)

Response from Dr. Young


Yes, these are ok. These tests indicate that you do not have viral hepatitis.

(There's no real difference between "Panel" an "Profile"- both terms mean a set of tests).
