What does it mean if your hepatitis a antibody igm test was nonreactive and your hepatitis a total antibody was reactive? are you infected or not? is the hep a infection from the past or recent?

No current infection: This result is most consistent with past HAV infection or immunity resulting from prior vaccination. The fact that the Anti-HAV IgM is negative indicates no recent infection, i.e. there is no current infection.

You're immune: Congratulations on being immune. You were either immunized or recovered from infection.
