Sir is it possible to be hbeag=+ve along with hbv-dna=-ve after taking antiviral for about a couple of months?I'm asking this question because I have been taking hepitec 100 mg for about 8 months thereby having a chance to become negative hbv dna(from 1070 iu/ml 8 months ago) by now,so is there any need to test for hbeag again?Previously hbeag was positive.
It's Hbeag +ve.I had tested for it a few years ago when I had very low hbv dna.But 8 months ago I tested for Hbv dna and LFT only.The LFT results were within normal range but hbv dna was 1070 iu/ml.My doctor advised me to take hepitec for 6 months and again test for hbv dna.Now I am going to test for hbv dna again that's why I am thinking whether there is any need to test for hbeag again?Are you trying to hint that my +ve result of hbeag could have been wrong at that time?Even my doctor had expressed doubts over it.
My lab test for hepatitis B shows:
HBsAg =0.27 .....reactive for >1
this mean that is less than 1 meaning HBSag negative = non-reactive. if more thant 1 it is HBSag positive =reactive
there fore the lab result is confusing it shout tell you either HBSag Neg or Pos period to avoid confusing
So ROM70 doubt is correct how can you be HBSag negative when HBeag is positive. A person having Hep B 1st he need to seconvert from HBeag to negative with HBeab positive, 2nd he needs to clear HBV dna Und replication of virus, last and not least seroconvert HBSag to Und.
HBeAg=1.02.......reactive for >1
Meaning HBe ag positive in the figure above higher than 1
Saying all the above you can have some people just like my case 12.12.12 i discovered Hep B. doing all the test it was found that my HBeag is negative also HBeab positive.This means taht my system already seconvert HBeag before i know i was infected.
best test to do: pos or neg (If already done please post them here for the sake of others to learn from your case)
