Explanation For HBsAg Examination?
Good morning doctor,
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
HBsAg examination is one of the serological tests for the hepatitis B virus. Hepatitis B is a disease caused by the hepatitis B virus. This virus attacks the liver, can cause damage to the liver / liver tissue and interfere with the function of the liver. The diagnosis can be seen from clinical symptoms, physical examination, and supporting examination (one of which is serological examination).
HBsAg is one of the surface antigen molecules from the Hepatitis B virus, this examination can be done with qualitative and quantitative methods. The constant is intended to indicate the amount of Hepatitis B virus quantitatively, where the normal value in humans not infected with Hepatitis B is below 0.05. This indicates the high number of Hepatitis B virus surface molecule antigens present in the body.
For the treatment of the hepatitis B virus, it is advisable to consult a specialist in internal medicine related to further examination and management. Medication can be given to relieve symptoms, but medicine can not be given to eliminate all the Hepatitis B virus in the body. In addition, it is also necessary to ascertain whether this condition is acute or chronic, so that an optimal treatment plan can be determined.
