Past exposure: The igg positive means you have either been infected or been vaccinated in the past and have developed an antibody. The igm negative means you are not actively infected right now.

HAV IgG good or bad: If you have HAV igg it means that you have responded to HAV vaccine or have had infection with hepatitis a virus. If you are well, it means you are protected from getting HAV infection. If you are sick with a liver injury, it means that HAV could be the cause.
