OMGosh! I should've finished my research about the Hepatitis comment above, before posting my question. After submitting my question & comment regarding the Hepatitis. I went back into my chart on portal and reviewed again. I hope these results are not the result of my liver problems now? I was not only never informed of the testing, let alone the results below. Shouldn't I've been treated back then? or am I misunderstanding something? Note as stated in previous posting. I was immunized against the virus before attending college yrs. before. Please help me understand these results?
Hep B Surface Antigen NEGATIVE Negative
Hep C Antibody NEGATIVE Negative
06/30/2005 Hep A Antibody Igm NEGATIVE -Note: POSITIVE Hep A Antibody IgM suggests an acute or recent Hepatitis A Viral infection. . NEGATIVE Hep A Antibody IgM
and POSITIVE Hep A Antibody (IgG + IgM) indicates the presence of Hep A Antibody (IgG). This confirms previous
exposure and immunity to the Hepatitis A Virus. .
Hep B Core Antibody Igm NEGATIVE-Positive Hep B Core Antibody IgM suggests an acute or recent Hepatitis B viral infection. .
So, I found a chart on the internet, but I don't understand it for the life of me. http://www.immunize.org/askexperts/experts_hepb.asp
