HBsAg negative
I just received the test results for Hepatitis markers.  These were tested because my AST level was 30 IU/L and my ALT level was 48 IU/L.  My hepatitis markers were (copied from the report):
HEP A AB total: negative
HEP A virus IGM: negative
HEP B surface Ag: negative
HEPA B core AB_T: positive
HEP-B surface AB: negative
HEP B surf AB,QT: <1
HEPA C virus: negative

From these results, my doctor informed me that I am a carrior of Hepatitis B.  My reading has lead me to understand that since my test for HBsAG is negative, I do not have hepatitus B.  This is confusing.  Which is right and what does the anti-HBc-total positive test mean?
