An Explanation Of The Results Of The Hepatitis B Lab?
Good evening doctor … The results of two routine checks of my father’s chronic Hepatitis B lab, the last one showing not detected, is that still a potential to transmit to others? Thank you

Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. The disease is initially acute and can become chronic until it is at risk of developing liver cancer and liver cirrhosis. The disease can appear without symptoms, mild to severe symptoms. Some groups at high risk of transmission are:
1. Have a partner with hepatitis B.
2. Work in the laboratory, where blood is often in contact.
3. HIV sufferers.
4. and others, you can read more here.
Someone who has been detected infected with the hepatitis B virus must undergo treatment and periodic examinations. This is needed to be able to achieve healing, prevent transmission and prevent complications (liver cirrhosis and liver cancer). Transmission occurs through contact with parts of the body exposed to the patient's bodily fluids (blood, sperm and vaginal fluid). To be able to find out whether the patient can transmit the virus or not, HBeAg examination is needed. If the results are reactive or positive, the patient has the ability to transmit the virus. Are the results you write based on these parameters?
We recommend that you re-consult every laboratory examination results obtained. Because these results must be matched with the clinical condition of the patient.
Thus hopefully useful.
