Help please with hep b
My wife has hep B. We want to apply to move to Australia but we have to have a medical and declare her hep b. If they consider her becomming a burden on the health care in the country they will refuse her entry. Here are her results from the doctor:
Observations:

"Hepatitis B core antibody level" Supplementary results
REPORT FROM REFERENCE LAB
Hepatitis B core antibody (serum)
Familly and close friends should be screened and protected as appropriate
Suggest reffereal to gastroenterologist/ hepatologist
Please inform this patient that this result notifiable to CCDC
"Hep B surface antigen" (serum)
Report from reference laboratory (UHW Cardiff)
Hepatitis Bs Antigen: ***POSITIVE***
Hepatitis B core ab (total): PRESENT
Hepatitis B  core Igm: Negative
Hepatitis B 'e' antigen: Negative
Hepatitis B  'e' Antibody: POSITIVE
Chronic Hep B infection, anti e AB present. Confirms patiient hx
This patients blood should be regarded as infectious

Observations:
"Liver function test"
Liver function test (serum)
"Seum total bilirubin level" 15 umol/L (1-21)
"Serum ALT level" 12 iu/L (0-50)
will be filled as 12 iu/L
"Serum alkaline phosphatase" 51 iu/L (30-130)
Will be filled as: 51 IU/L
"Serum total protein" 69g/L (60-80)
"Serum albumin" 43g/L (35-50)
"Serum globulin" 26 g/L (21-39)


Do you think she will be a burden on the health care or remain fit and healthy? She has had it for around 7 years and she is now 31 with a 3 year old son. what her chances of living a normal healthy life?
Thank you
Thanks

We don't know what the criteria are for "health burden", so we cannot give you an opinion. People with Hepatitis B have been allowed to migrate to Australia, each case is considered on its own merit. In general, I would say the Australian system is fair.
Good luck.
