HEPATITIS B(CARRIER)
Dec 19, 2006

My wife recently had an physical and it stated she's a hepatitus B carrier. What does that mean in terms I can understand.

Response from Dr. Horwath

It means that she has the hepatitis B virus, but she is not suffering from any illness from it at this time. In some people, hepatitis B remains relatively inactive and does not serious illness if they remain otherwise healthy (don't drink, don't use drugs that may damage the liver, etc.).
