Sir,in 2006 I went to donate blood but I very surprisingly I know that I have HBSag postive.I met a Gastroenterology doctor.On his advise I got some test
.Real-Time PCR for HBV-DNA(Quantative) = <100 COPIES/ml
Hbe Ag.(HBE) Test =0.00(Nagative)
Anti Hepatitis B Core Antigen-Igm(AHBc-Igm) =<2.00 U/ml (Nagative)
SGPT = 25
Now I want to know what I should do.All the tests are normal.My friends a doctor advise me not to use alchohal,ciggrete and other eatables which can effect the liver.Pls advise me.
the minimum to define hbv infection status is:
hbsag quantitative in iu/ml by abbott architect or roches elecsys
the test you did is obsolete because sensitivity is 100copies/ml, too high, but anyway hbvdn is not important because you can be fully infected even if hbvdna is undetectable, hbsag quantity is the most important test
