HAV and HBV result

Pls help me to identify these results. I had it done 5 days ago because I had an elevated ALT value of 90.

HAV Ab Total: Reactive
HAV Ab IgM:   Non-Reactive
HAV Ab IgG:   Reactive
HBsAg:        Non-Reactive
HBcAb, total: Reactive
HBsAb, Ql:    Reactive
HCV Ab:       Non-Reactive

Med.Hx: I had an acute jaundice hepatitis caused by HAV 10 yrs ago.

My question is 1.Do I need to do HBeAb and HBeAg to rule out Hep B?    
               2.Does the result of HAV mean that I am not infected by HAV now?
               3.Do I need to do abdominal u/s to exclude fatty liver if all my lab results are normal?

Thank you in advance for your instruction!

go to this site: http://janis7hepc.com/labs1.htm
it has liver test result interpretations.


1.Do I need to do HBeAb and HBeAg to rule out Hep B?

HBsAg: Non-Reactive. This is your hepB surface antigen. It says you do not currently have ongoing infection from active hepB virus.


HBsAb, Ql: Reactive, tests for immunity (vaccine or past infection).  You are immune to this strain (at least you have the antibodies).

HBcAb, total: Reactive: this is the core antibody, tests for exposure to hepB virus. You once had the virus.

HCV Ab: Non-Reactive, tests for hepC antibodies.
