Hi,My husband 37 years diagnosed this week with hepatitis b by chance. His lab results as follows:
Hbcab total positive
Hbcab igm negative
Dna quantitative is 680 iu.
Alt and ask is normal.
Ultrasound is normal.
After reading alot from you here i believe he is a chronic but The doctor said he is not need for treatment right now and let's see the next 6 month you may be have a chance to clear it.his incidents are(he had a blood transmission when he is one year old and he was in the dentist from 7 months)..
My questions are:
1- is he have a chance to clear it really or he is confirmed chronic phase?
2- if its a chronic phase from child,is he in a danger because he is in his fourth decade of age?
3- we married since 10 years and iam tested negative for all hbv markers,how is that,any clarification? Am I an occult hbv seronegative?
4- we have two boys (5 &8) years old.they tested negative for hbsag and dna und.they have the vaccine at (2,4&6 months after birth) but not at first 24 hours ..is they clear? Is vaccine can be effective even if they don't take it at first day of birth? Or may its an occult patients??
Please help me cause I can't sleep from worry about my husband and my sons..
