What Does Hepatitis A Ab Total Reactive Mean
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
Exposure / Vaccine: Hard to say without knowing the rest of the hep b panel. It either means you've been exposed to HBV or have been vaccinated. ...Read more
Hello good afternoon, im reading my results and it says hepatitis b surface ab ql reactive, what does that mean?
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. ...Read more
Tests results Hepatitis Be Ab :non- reactive Hepatitis Be Ag:reactive Hepatitis Bs Ag:non - reactive Quantitative HBV PCR:not detected what it means?
Hb core ab-igm non reactive hepatitis b core ab total reactive and hep b surface antigen non reactive what does this 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?
No active infection: When people have reactive hepatitis b surface antigen, they have proteins from hepatitis b in their blood. These people have active infection and may need treatment. If there is no reactive hbsag, then most likely there is no active infection. Rarely, people who have hepatitis b core antibody detected, but no hepatitis b surface antibody, can have chronic active infection. ...Read more
I would want to know the following information:
are they hepatitis b surface antigen reactive?
Are they hepatitis b e antibody reactive?
Did this person likely get hepatitis b as a baby or small child or when they were older?
What is the hepatitis b dna (viral load) level?
What is the alt (liver enzyme) value?
In isolation this lab value can mean multiple things. ...Read more
In many laboratories:
A "borderline nonreactive" result is reported as "indeterminate." A positive result is an antibody titer
>12 mIU/mL; this means the individual is immune to hepatitis B. A negative result is <5.0. The CDC defines a fairly large range of indeterminate: > 5.0 but < 12.0. Indeterminate means "unable to determine immune status." Most would advise (re)immunization in this case. Stay well:) ...Read more
It depends: It depend specifically on what test is reactive. There are a dozen different kind of tests and your question is impossible to answer since you did not share exactly what test is positive. Reactive could mean immunity from vaccination to immunity from prior exposure to active disease. ...Read more
If you are hepatitis b reactive, and then you are test again for HBsAG and the result is non reactive what does it mean? You don't have hbv?
Reactive to what?: Hbv markers are used to distinguish actively infected from immunity, the latter include antibody to surface antigen (hbsab) and to the core antigen (hbcab). Some tests detect part of the virus, such as surface antigen (hbsag), the core antigen, or hbv dna. The presence of hbsag indicates that the person is potentially infectious. Hbsab replaces hbsag as the hbv infection evolves to immunity. ...Read more
Having Hep B surface antibody indicates Immunity to Hep B, either through past infection or through immunization. If through past infection, you will also have the core antibody. If through immunization, then no core antibody seen.
Having surface antibdy is what we want to see - it's a good thing! ...Read more
What does it mean if "HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIBODY QL" is "borderline" but "HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGEN" is "non-reactive"?
Uncertain.: Without the rest of your lab values, it is difficult to know for sure. These value suggest that you may have been exposed or vaccinated for hepatitis B in the past, but again we're working with incomplete information. You may speak with your physician who ordered the tests or call us at HealthTap Prime if you have the rest of the results. Good luck. ...Read more
Doc yesterday my friend told me that the result of her medical was weak reactive in her blood what does it mean doc? She have hepatitis?
Possible exposure: I suggest repeating the hepatitis A, B and C tests and checking your liver function. ...Read more
Non Reactive: Inconsistent with immunity, less than 10 mIU/mL. Hepatitis B Surface Antibody. Does this mean I don't have Hepatitis B as well?
You don't most likel:
There can be a problem with the test if the antibody has not developed (takes up to a month) or if the viral proteins are so much that it sucks up all the antibody. Gnerally both the viral protein and antibody levels are measured at the same time.
but seems negative. ...Read more
What is mean by HBsAg : Non-Reactive and Anti-HBs : 49 mIU/mL Should I take IM hepatitis B booster?
No booster needed: That lab result shows your past hep B vaccination worked and your are immune. You don't need a booster. ...Read more
I had blood tests done and my hepatitis b surface antibody QL reactive, hepatitis b surface antigen non-reactive, what does it mean?
Need entire panel.: You're best off using HealthTap Prime to answer your question. You can upload the entire lab report & discuss with a doctor. So far, test shows you have antibodies but no antigen: means either you're in the "window period" after exposure when the virus goes "underground" or you were given a vaccine which made you immune to hepatitis B. We need the pre-core "e" test. Use HealthTap Prime to disucss. ...Read more
Hi my anti HBe, anti HBc lgG, anti HAv lgG is results below the cutt off value is considered reactive what does it means? Its hepatitis b?
Need to see report.: Use HealthTap Prime to upload the report & discuss with a doctor, live. We need to know if you are experiencing any hepatitis-related symptoms. Also, need to know if you were ever immunized or exposed. Something doesn't quite make sense, since you state that results were below cutoff levels & is considered "reactive". Were they titers or levels? Reactive or not? Use the other forum to discuss. GL. ...Read more
What does this hav result mean hav-igm is non reactive while hav -igg to hepatitis a virus is reactive?
Hello, I took test for Hep A (Hepatitis A ABS, TOTAL). Result says REACTIVE. That means I have hep A?! So why my doctor said its normal?
My Hepatitis C Antibody test was non reactive. The results included a comment "Does not exclude early acute HCV infection". What does this mean?
See below: It takes the body variable period of time to make antibodies in response to an infection. In the case of Hep C it may take a few weeks from the time of infection to the time when the body makes antibodies. If you are concerned about have been exposed to Hep C, you may wish to repeat the test in about 6 months. ...Read more
