I received some lab results back today and this is what it reads:
HBsAb: Positive \Over these two it reads "VIRAL HEPATITIS I"
HAVAB: Positive /
HAVAB IgM: Negative
I have been told before that I have Autoimmune Hepatitis and went all the way through to the liver biopsy. It came back as not enough to quite categorize Lever 1. But now I get this and I'm WORRIED! What does it mean? I have had the Hep A & B vaccines when I was in the Army back in 2005.
Hi Shannon, I don't know if you remember me, but we talked a lot when you were going through the dx part back in 08. It looked like either lymes or lupus, but you were dx w/ RA if I remember right??? I was checking up on you and saw this post. I know it was back in Aug. I hope that everything worked out good for you. Let me know what you found out. If you do have autoimmune hep. then that really does sound more like lupus. I don't think RA would affect the organs like lupus does.
