New results. This time I have the labs.
HEPATITIS B CORE AB TOTAL REACTIVE        
HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGEN NON-REACTIVE
HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIBODY QL NON-REACTIVE
HEPATITIS B CORE IGM ANTIBODY NON-REACTIVE
AST 18 U/L Normal
ALT 17 U/L Normal  

I see the first one in red on my report, but the rest read normal.  Is this good or just a time bomb waiting to go off?

You do not have Hepatitis B.  You do not have antibodies yet.  Get vaccinated to be immune for life.

Best.

Why would my doc say I'm a carrier?  Granted, she is not a specialist.  I've had three tests and they have all said the same.  She make a mistake?

HBsAg non-reactive means you don't have the virus now.  Ask her.

But why is your HbeAg reactive if your HbsAg is non-reactive? Better get vaccinated to be sure and have it monitored. For now, I think you dont have the virus.
