Detect And Treat Hepatitis R Or NR?
Good morning. I want to share a little story and ask for a solution from the doctor. I am a pregnant woman one month ago I felt pain in my upper right abdomen when I checked my HBSAG at the puskesmas it turned out that my HBSAG was R then yesterday I was referred to the hospital and it turned out to be in the hospital. the result is my HBsag is NR and indeed lately I have not felt pain in my upper right abdomen. My question is whether I have recovered from hepatitis or not, doctor? Frankly, I’m confused which test results are correct. what should I do doctor?rnThank you in advance
Hello, Sitii, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
The results of HBsAg R (reactive) indicate the presence of hepatitis B virus infection in your body which is infectious (can transmit). Meanwhile, the HBsAg NR (non reactive) result indicates that there is no active infection with the hepatitis B virus in your body. Changes in HBsAg results from R to NR can be caused by several possibilities:
1. You are not infected with the hepatitis B virus. In acute hepatitis B infection, it will usually heal on its own within 6 months. If the HBsAg result is positive/reactive for more than 6 months, it indicates chronic hepatitis B infection. However, HBsAg results cannot confirm whether the infection is acute or chronic. To find this out, it is necessary to carry out another examination.
2. The difference between the inspection method and the accuracy of the tool
All you have to do is consult a doctor who treats your illness. In addition to the results of the HBsAg test, it is necessary to check your symptoms, physical examination, and other investigations that may be needed, such as liver function tests and other hepatitis B tests. Ask about next steps for yourself and your baby. In addition, regular check-ups are needed to monitor the health of you and your unborn baby. Boost your immune system and maintain your health by meeting nutritional needs during pregnancy, getting enough rest, avoiding prohibited foods during pregnancy, only taking medications that are prescribed by your doctor, and avoiding stress. Prevent transmission of hepatitis B by vaccinating babies at birth; avoid the use of illegal drugs; avoid sharing razors, earrings, and toothbrushes; do not have sex with people you do not know their hepatitis B status or use protection during sex, be careful with procedures that use sharp objects such as body piercing and tattoos.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
