What do these results mean? Hbsag positive, hbs ab negative, hbeag negative, hbeab positive and hbc ab positive?

This is serious: It is likely that you are infected with two different hepatitis viruses and need to be under the care of a physician who's willing to explain lab results and get you treated. Please don't let this go. Your life may well depend on your being appropriately assertive. ...Read more

Please interpret-

You have chlamydia: "Detected" means the test found chlamydia -- i.e. a positive result. Return to the doctor or clinic where the test was done for treatment. (If you tested yourself at a lab, see a doctor or clinic ASAP.) Your current or recent sex partner(s) also need treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Acth stimulation test results accurate?

Acth stimulation test results accurate?

Depends: I'm assuming no lab errors. If you get a very high cortisol spike after receiving the first dose of ACTH, you are reassured you do not have Addison's. No, or a very small spike, strongly suggests Addison's. In-between... that's why there are specialist endocrinologists. ...Read more

05/05/2016 Siemens Advia Centaur hep C antibody result positive.08/10/2016 Abbott Architect (cmia) hep C antibody result negative.Who is telling truth?

It's not really: a question of truth telling. No test is perfect: the proteins and reactants used in each test will respond to an individual's blood/biologic material, potentially, in a different way. Falsely positive or falsely negative results are not very unusual. You need to decide on a confirmatory strategy with your doctor. Retesting is necessary and an expert can help you weigh the evidence to decide result ...Read more

Test result was "Hepatitis Surface Antibody - Nonreactive" and "Hepatitis B Surface Antigen - Reactive", "HBS AG Confirmation - Nonconfirm".

Hmmmm: Got me beat. A reactive Hep B antigen indicates that you have Hepatitis B. However, It looks like the test was NOT confirmed. My experience with labs is that their report format could use some improvement and you may be misreading this. Talk to the doc who ordered the test. ...Read more

Hepb surface antigen positive, confirmatory test negative, antibody and core negative, should I worry?

Hepb surface antigen positive, confirmatory test negative, antibody and core negative, should I worry?

Possibly: Do not understand how initial test was positive and "confirmatory" test negative. Need to repeat these, although you may be in the "window" period, when antigen is being consumed by forming antibody and neither is measurable. Wait 3 months and retest antibody titers. By then you may be hepb antibody and core antibody positive, in which case you are immune. ...Read more

HSV 1 positive through blood test =[LIAISON assay using chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) tech.]  Index=1.47, how likely is it false positive?

Not false positive: False positive tests for HSV1 are very rare. Half of all persons your age have positive tests, so nothing unusual there. Most likely from an oral infection in the distant past. ...Read more
