result interpretation help pleaze
Hello.

Help with this question/result please:

If Hep. B surface antigen is ::  NEGATIVE
Hep. B Surface Antibody is :: >1000 (POSITIVE)
Hep. B Core ant. total: POSITIVE

Is this person a carrier?  no infection? immune?

would this interpret as immune due to natural infection?  no longer have the infection because antigen is negative, and developed antibodies? so would it be transferable?

you are immune to Hep B
you dont have it , you wont have it ever.

therefore, you are not a carrier and wont be

good idea to live a healthy life anyway.

if its not Hep B , its gonna be something else if one doesnt take care of their health..

as for hep B, you're immune

If you are anti-HBs positive, HBV cannot be transmitted to you sexually.

I recently gave blood and my test results came back negative for everything except for the Antibodies to Hep B core antigens which came back positive, I have had all the shots (vaccines)  so is this good or bad and what does this mean for my family?  Please help, Thanks.
