Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all types of neurological & medical conditions including the concerns of Hepatitis B related blood test report of your Mom you have mentioned here, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

Her report tells she has positive antibodies against hepatitis B

This is good news, this means she has immunity against hepatitis B virus

Her Hepatitis B antigen is negative, which means she is not having any infection with this virus, but she is already immunised against this virus, so the presence of antibodies will protect her against any future infection with this virus

Her antibody titer (HBSAb titer) is 42.4, it should be above 11, so her level is very good, which means she is very well protected against Hepatitis B virus, so this is a very good news for her

Please let me know if you have any further questions, and please click a positive rating to credit for the time & effort put by me in answering your question.

Best regards,

Neuro Doctor

An addendum; And the other test report on Hepatitis C virus (Anti HCV) which should come non-reactive, which is also good news this means she is not having Hepatitis C virus infection. For Hepatitis B the antibody should be present in the blood, for Hepatitis C the antibody should be absent in the blood, so all her above results are normal, and it tells she is not infected with hepatitis B or C, and she also has good immunity against Hepatitis B. So all very good news for her.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
