Hi i have undergone many test as doctor suggested, finally doctor said there wont be necessary of any medicine please help to understand, test results shown below..
1) Specimen - Blood
Investigation - HBsAg
Test method - CMIA
Result - REACTIVE ( > 25,000 IU/ml)
2) HEP B EVALUATION
HEPATITIS BE ANTIBODIES, SERUM
HEPATITIS B e ANTIBODY - REACTIVE
PATIENT VALUE - 0.020 low (> 1.0 NON REACTIVE , <or = 1.0 REACTIVE)
3) HEPATITIS BE ANTIGEN, SERUM
HEPATITIS B e ANTIGEN - NON REACTIVE
PATIENT VALUE 0.26 or = 1.00 Reactive)
4) * HBV QUANTITATIVE (REAL TIME PCR)
HBV VIRAL LOAD - <3.8 < 3.8 IU/ml
METHOD - REAL TIME PCR
***** KINDLY NOTE :THE HBV VIRAL LOAD CAN BE EXPRESSED AS <LOG 0.58 AND THE CALCULATED VALUE IS < 28 CPS/ML (CONVERSION
FACTOR : 1 IU/ML=7.5 CPS/ML).
You are HBeAg negative and your viral load is undetectable, that is why your doctor is correct, in my opinion, to recommend no treatment. However, your qHBSAg is not low, so I think you should have regular check up to monitor the situation. Hopefully, your viral load will continue to stay undetectable.
Thanks again Stephen, i checked the report it is >25,000 iu/ml, just to confirm i'll have this test again. since last week i am noticing that my urine is yellow, i read in a website that it's a symptom of chronic HB, is that true? what i have to do in this situation? i am scared that i may spread it to my son, he is just 4 years old. i am avoiding him, i am not playing with him. i checked and confirmed with the regular pediatrics that my son already vaccinated. can you please tell me is there any problem if i take him for vaccination again? please..
Yellow urine is not a symptom when your all blood tests are in range, just drink more water.
As for your child, if he is vaccinated you are not a danger to him. Just check if he is immune by hbsab quantity test. If its is >10 iu/ml he is immune, but normal range should be >>100.
Your absag test is indeed strange fpr hbe neg and VL under, 25000iu is too high.
You would have been told by your doctor that you have previously been infected with HBV (HBcAb positive), but that you have recovered from the infection (HBsAg negative) and that you have developed strong immunity against future infection (HBsAb > 10 iu/l).
In my opinion, you will not infect others with Hepatitis B.
Because of your previous infection with HBV, you should always inform your doctors should you need to go on any immune suppressive therapies as a precaution. whether you can still donate blood is also a moot point.
