hepa B

I got tested with Anti-HBc IgG and found reactive,my value is 0.056 and the cut off value is 0.437.
What does all these test means? Am I infected with Hepatitis B virus? what are the necessary measures he need to take?

Anti-HBc IgG, why did you test this antibody?this is absolutely useless as first test

hbsag is the first test, if positive for more than 6months you are cronic (chronic) carrier but you need all other tests to see if virus is replicating (equal making damage) or not

for virus you need:
hbsag quantity in iu/ml
hbsab
hbe quantity test
hbeab
hbvdna pcr
alt/ast

for liver damage:
liver panel tests
ultrasound
fibroscan (if alt higher than 200 must be remade by 6 months wth lower alt)

this is useful Anti-HBc Igm (not IGg alone) to know if infection is acute result is positive/cronic result is negative and mong negative results quantity below 0.2s/co with hbvdna und means you have inactive virus at the moment
