thnx a lot stef2011..
this is my lab test result:

HBS ANTIGEN (quantum)
-------patient's value is 255.17

-------Cut - off Value is R>=2.000
ANTIBODY TO HEPA B ANTIGEN
-------Patient's Value is 0.035
-------Interpretation is REACTIVE

ALT---- RESULT 21. U/L
Normal range is 9. - 72.
Check your Anti-HBc IgM, if this is non reactive it means you are in chronic stage. If it is reactive, you are in acute stage. I suggest to do the test in Hi-Precision lab in the philippines, do a full hepa b profile test. They will give you quantitative results. Post it here in the forum so they can help you with the results.
