Hello,
Hepatitis A   IgM is the first antibody produced by the body in a person suffering from hepatitis A. The hepatitis A IgM test is used to screen for early detection of infection. It is elevated in acute infection.HB sAg test is used to diagnose hepatitis B.These tests are done on blood samples. The results can be available on the same day within few hours of drawing the blood. What are the symptoms you have been having? If you have been having symptoms suggestive of hepatitis then you need to discuss these test results with your doctor. Hope it helps.
Take care and regards!
