I have hepatitis C diagnosed. My last lab test had a hepatitis a ab reactive. How bad is my case ?

I have hepatitis C diagnosed. My last lab test had a hepatitis a ab reactive. How bad is my case ?

Can't tell: Your hepatitis a antibody just tell me that you have recovered from or been immunized against hepatitis a in the past. Hepatitis c is serious and i would urge you to seek treatment if you want to lead a long life of good quality. The two infections are unrelated. Good luck. ...Read more

What happen if I have hepatitis b ab (hbsab) reactive?

What happen if I have hepatitis b  ab (hbsab) reactive?

Nothing: If you have a positive test for hepatitis b antibodies, it means you have been exposed to the virus and had an immune reaction to it; or, you were vaccinated, and have an immune reaction to the viral components in the vaccine. It does not mean you are infected with the virus; that would require a positive hepatitis b antigen test. ...Read more

If you were vaccinated for Hep A, the total Ab will be reactive, so that is good. If you were ever exposed to Hep A, it will also be reactive. You need the IgM and symptoms to see if it's a recent infection. IgG indicates prior infection and helps you resist a new infection. ...Read more

Hepatitis b surface antibody is acquired either following vaccination, or after you have cleared a past infection. ...Read more
