What does it mean if you got a result stating "reactive" of HBsag? what's the difference between positive and reactive? I got a hepa vaccine about 15 years ago, then after five years I got married to a hepa b carrier, last 2007, i got the result "reactive" HBsag? please help me...

Thanks for responding to my queries. I don't know how to deal with this now.. feeling so down and low... what does it mean when you're a healthy/clean carrier?

Healthy carrier means you are not infectious

your HBEAG status will determine your level of infectivity, but regardless of HBEAG status you will always have a chance to infect other people.

What should i do to continue living a healthy life? is there a cure for this? or just to make the virus inactive?

No proven medication yet that can cure, just live a healthy lifestyle, eat healthy foods, avoid stress, exercise etc. thats all you can do.

thanks for the inputs... me and my husband got separated last 2008 and because of this, i ended up drinking a lot and goes on for 3 years. Lately i stopped drinking. I am not sure about the result of my Hep B profile before, hence, i thought its gonna be ok to take alcohol, anyway i stopped drinking for about a year now, though i feel perfectly ok, no signs of illnes whatsoever, i am wondering if i have damaged my liver after drinking for 3 years/... :((
