Hepatitis B

What creates a false positve and what does this mean?  If my initial tests indicate that I have chronic hep b and my GGT is normal what does this mean?

Thank you.

I'm sorry that nobody has answered your question. Most of us on this forum have hep c, not hep b. I wish somebody could answer you. You might Google around and try and find something. I know this forum is supposed to be about all types of hepatitis, but it seems that it's mostly about hep c - I don't know why that is. Good luck.

It may have something to do whit anti bodys for hep b.  I know when my husband was first tested they said he had anti bodies for hep b so must have had it at some point.  My sister did not have any anti bodies so they had her get the 3 part vacination b4 she could start her hep c treatment.

Most of us were infected at birth or as babies/children when the immune system is weak and not formed. ''Almost all newborns and about 50% of children who become infected with hepatitis B develop chronic hepatitis. Less than 5% of adults who are infected with the hepatitis B virus develop the chronic condition."
So it is unusual that an adult who become infected to get chronic.
