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

Cannot evaluate: Individual lab tests cannot be interpreted without all of the results and an understanding of the patient's medical history. I would recommend asking the doctor who ordered the test or considering a consult on HealthTap Prime, If you have the lab results and can upload them. Good luck. ...Read more

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

Hello..what does Hepatitis A Ab total Reactive lab result means?Thanks

Hepatitis Lab test: By itself, the total antibody test tells only part of the story. Reactive basically means positive. 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

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

You're protected!: Hepatitis b surface antigen means you have active virus. If your surface antigen is negative, and your surface antibody is positive, then (except in very rare circumstances) you are not infected and your antibody protection is complete. Hepatitis b surface antibody is acquired either following vaccination, or after you have cleared a past infection. ...Read more
