Reagent HAV anti-IgG and High levels of alpha 2 globulin
My mom got some lab results and we were very scared with the fact that she is IgG reagent for HAV. Does it mean that she was infected by HAV some time in the past and didn't even notice? Are there any risks for her health now?
Besides that, her alpha 2 globulin values were a little bit higher than it should be. Does it have any relation with the HAV antibodies she has? I heard that this high levels of globulin could be related to nephritis. Is that right? Can it be treated?
Could the HAV antibodies be affecting her kidneys also?
Thank you very much for any kind of help you guys can give us!
