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.

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.

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.

Test results: hepatitis Be Ab non-reactive Hepatitis Be Ag: negative Hepatitis Bs Ag: non reactive Quantitative HBV PCR : detected What it means?

Test results: hepatitis Be Ab non-reactive Hepatitis Be Ag: negative Hepatitis Bs Ag: non reactive Quantitative HBV PCR : detected What it means?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, from what you provided, you could have an early stage infection with hepatitis B. More than 80% of the people recover from the infection on their own. Discuss it with the doctor who ordered the test.

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

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.

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

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.

Could you tell me why my hepatitis C ab, IgM read reactive a and the signal to cut off is 28.70 m <1.00 mean?

Could you tell me why my hepatitis C ab, IgM read reactive a and the signal to cut off is 28.70 m <1.00 mean?

Antibody Test: If the test is greater than the signal-to-cutoff value, it means that there is hepatitis C antibody in the blood. This doesn't necessarily mean that a person is infected. To confirm that there is active infection, a virus test has to be done.

Dad's oncologist ordered tests before starting chemo and radiation next month but showed reactive to hepatitis A Ab total will this cause problems?

Dad's oncologist ordered tests before starting chemo and radiation next month but showed reactive to hepatitis A Ab total will this cause problems?

Hep A ab: The presence of Hep A antibody could mean either current or PAST infection with Hep A because"Total Hep A ab" measures both IgM (active disease) and IgG (old disease). The IgG antibody lasts for years. If the other liver tests (ALT, AST) are normal, this would indicate past infection, and nothing to worry about.

How did it happened to have a hepatitis b postive non reactive result?

How did it happened to have a hepatitis b postive non reactive result?

Please ask again: It makes no sense what you wrote. There is usually on the test results the results and then what the test would be if one did not have the situation or infection. If you are reading your lab reports and it says first hepatitis b positive. Then that means you are either immune to this infection because of vaccination or have had the infection. There has to be more information than that though.

Hi, I have reactive hepatitis b and I want to proceed on medical course, do I have still chance to go on studying medicine?

Hi, I have reactive hepatitis b and I want to proceed on medical course, do I have still chance to go on studying medicine?

There is always: A chance and hope. Start your medical studies once the viral load is low and your immune system is strong and stable. Follow your doctor's advice. Sensible advice is to avoid taking tylenol (acetaminophen) and drinking alcohol.Eat nutritious foods, more fruits and veggies. Take care and god bless u! http://www. Ghanaweb.
