Anti-HbS Examination Results?
Hello, I’m an 18 year old woman, yesterday I did a medical check-up lab. Anti-HBs and 512.9 positive results. What does this mean, I’m worried if I have a Hep virus. And what should I do?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
In the diagnosis of hepatitis B diagnosis, 2 components of HBsAg are generally examined to assess the presence or absence of viruses in the body and Anti HBs to assess the presence of an immune system against positive or reactive hepatitis B virus. Anti-HBs can mean two things. First, it can mean that the patient has been infected with the Hepatitis B virus and has been overcome. Secondly, it can also show that a patient has had a hepatitis B vaccine.
In the results you submit, the Anti HBs titer is obtained 512.9, which is a titer> 100IU / L means that there is already an immunity, so from the results you submit this means you already have an immune system against hepatitis B.
Some tips for preventing hepatitis:
Avoid using the toothbrush, towel together
Avoiding skin with other people's wounds or blood
Do not use syringes together
Do not do dental examinations or treatments in a place that does not prioritize cleanliness and sterility of the tool
No tattoo on the body where it is not sterile
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
