Laboratory supporting examination is a medical examination device to support a doctor's diagnosis.
Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver / liver caused by a virus. Transmission occurs through non-sterile injections that are used interchangeably, punctured by needles used by patients with Hepatitis B (usually medical personnel), sexual intercourse / contact, and transmission through the mother during pregnancy to the fetus through the placenta. If your grandmother is found to have Hepatitis B, then indeed all of her biological children must undergo laboratory tests to rule out Hepatitis B.
Hepatitis B is often asymptomatic.
From your mother's laboratory results, there was no Hepatitis B virus infection and immunity against Hepatitis B infection (which can be obtained from vaccination / the healing process after infection)
We recommend that the results of the Hepatitis B test, your mother is still consulted directly with the doctor to ensure that your mother is in good health and determine whether screening / screening for other infectious diseases is necessary.
