Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there The antibodies your body produces against Hepatitis B are completely different from those produced against HIV and would not cross react on standard laboratory testing. Sounds like you are currently immune to hepatitis B, but would have to see result to be sure. take care LHW
