Thanks For the comment Shankar,
Is it any reason for Chronic . On what base you can conclude Chronic?

Chronic. Cause of the present of e antibody. It's the last stage of the virus

Hi Mario30,

If its last stage of virus means .. there  will be no harm ? Please confirm ?

hbcab total constitutes igG and igM. first one indicates chronic 2nd one acute. total is doubtful for chronicity though ur eAg is negative which supports u being chronic. If these tests are done at more than 6 months after ur possible exposure, u r certainly chronic. check for anti hbcab igm if possible.

I agree you should check the igm.  I am new to all this but I am chronic bc hbsag + and anti anti hbc igm -.   Hope you are acute.  Discovering that you are chronic is a heavy burden and life's altering
