I am frequent blood doner, I donate every 2 month (for a year now ) Due to high RBC (5.8) and Hgb counts (17), during my last blood donation, I recvd a letter stating that a test for HBcAB was positive but all other tests including HBsAG are negative! it was ashock to me, so I have done HBV test and liver panel test, the result are as follows:
HBCAB mean you either had been infected by the virus and cleared it on your own or you are clear of the virus by a past vaccination.. in either case you are free and immune tot he virus. you wont have it dont worry
as for postive hbea, not sure if this is a matter of concern in your case
stop worrying and enjoy your life.. in a healthy manner ofcourse
