It means you are positive(reactive) for HBsAg. This should be stated in your lab report. The numbers, 0.115, 3.5 serve no useful purpose and are meaningful in terms of the assay used. If you want to know your quantity of HBsAg, you have to request a quantitative HBsAg assay that will reports its result in iu/ml.

R stands for Reactive (positive). NR stands for Non-Reactive (negative).

You tested positive for HBsAg, and because your Anti-HBc IgM is negative, you have chronic Hepatitis B. You are also HBeAg positive, this together with your age, will place you in either the Immune tolerance phase or Immune clearance(reactive) phase.

Hepatitis B is a chronic disease with very few symptoms. In the West, most people discover they have HepB when they donate blood. In the Philippines, most people discover through medical screening when applying to work overseas.

I hope you have recovered from your shock. HepB is a very slow moving disease and there are very effective treatments to control the disease. So try to learn as much as you can about the disease, find a good liver doctor, and be monitored regularly.

I know some Middle East countries do discriminate against workers with HepB. They are wrong and hopefully with protests, they will change.

There is a very Hong Kong actor, he has HepB too. So don't let HepB stop you from doing what you want, it may make it harder, but it is just one of the many obstacles in life that we all have to overcome daily.
