It says reactive, it means you have antibodies = immunity for hav.
Hav = hepatitis A virus
hbv = hepatitis B virus

Maybe the doctor has another test...

hmmm... no other test done except the sgpt which is 68.4 where the doctor said it is due to fatty liver?? what can you say??

Elevated alt can be due due to fatty liver, or liver inflamation (inflammation). Are you overweight or alcohol abuser?
I would make ultrasound of the liver to confirm and full liver blood tests.

actually, i am confused with what the doctor said.. having those anti hav g test result and sgpt, he concluded that it was a hep b. thats why i came up in this site to raise the question, and an opinion of others like you if the doctor is right. I kept searching about anti hav g and all i got was it is all about hep A. Does taking alcohol 1 week or days before the test was done will affect the result??

It seems you have depth knowledge about this.

I think you should stop guessing and ask your doctor why he told you that, maybe he knows something that we dont. Up to now your tests do not give rise to much worry.
If you want to investigate further do ultrasound and liver functions teats. To check for hbv test hbsag.
