hep a,b,c

My husband just have been tested positive for hep.a,b,c.It is that possible?  I googled it but I find nothing like that.He is a baby boomer and because of his job he is tested every year.This time the level of liver enzymes was too high and the doctor ask for additional test.We are shock.

Yes it is possible to be tested for Hepatitis virus A,B,C at the same time. Of course it would be rare to have more then one of these types.

Not to worry, many things can cause above normal LFT's, i.e. drinking alcohol close to when test was done, medications, etc.

best of luck

          my dr tests everyone with elevated lft for A,B and C.  i tested reactive to all 3 antibodies.  this is not rare.  hep B among adults clears on its own in 95% of infections.  i had gammaglobulin shot in 1985 for hep a outbreak in restaurant my wife worked for.  i never knew i was exposed to any of the 3.      barry

Please read my post again. I wrote it would be rare to have more then one of the viruses at the same time. Not the antibody but active virus. The reason this would be rare is if you had Hep C along with A or B you would probably be dead!
