A test result showed...

A test result showed that I am hepatitis b positive

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I have no symptoms

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No bad history so far, I am just worried how I got contacted with the hepatitis b, but then I drink and consumed lots of alcohol in the past 15 years.

Do you have the actual results that you can send me? Hepatitis B is very difficult to interpret and is based on the presentation of a core antibody, the surface protein, and other proteins

Here is the result

Here is the liver checkup test

You should have a hepatitis Be antigen and hepatitis core antibody test done. The two of these tests will help differentiate if this is an acute or chronic infection. You can also have a hepatitis B DNA test done.

Please I need you to interpret the liver result test I send to you

Your liver results are all normal. The AST is slightly out range. it is not of any concern. If you recheck them, it will likely be normal
