7 doctors agree
In brief: Through blood work
Which include hepatitis b surface antigen, hepatitis b surface antibody, hepatis b core antibody, hepatitis b e antigen, hepatitis b viral load etc.
Depending on the combination of these etc, you can tell if its an acute infection or whether the person is already immune.
