Factors Affecting The Decrease In Anti-HBs Titre Examination?
Hello, I’m an 18-year-old woman, I study at the nursing faculty and now practice a clinic in one of the hospitals. On the 5th of May before my practice at the anti-HBsAg hospital I reached over 500, but when examined on May 20 when I practiced the anti-HBsAg clinic I dropped to 380. What I want to ask Are there any factors that influence this? Can fatigue and lack of sleep be the trigger? Are these conditions dangerous or safe? What is the solution from the doctor to increase immunology or endurance? Thank you for the answer
Hello Azrikaputrianasyfa, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Anti-HBs titer examination is basically an examination to find out the titer (amount) of antibodies in the body against the hepatitis B virus. This examination itself should ideally only be done after vaccinating to find out whether antibodies have been formed against the hepatitis B virus or not where the antibody titer what is said to be adequate is when the number reaches> 100 mIU / mL.
Also keep in mind that this titer will decrease and will not increase again over time and this is a normal thing that happens to people who have normal immune status (not sufferers of immunosuppressed conditions such as those with AIDS / cancer / chronic diseases other) and this situation is not a dangerous situation. This condition itself is not triggered by activity or other factors. Although this number continues to decline over time, your body's immunity will keep in mind this endurance so that you will still be protected from the hepatitis B virus and do not require re-vaccination or examination of hepatitis B titer even though you have passed more than 10 years from the first vaccination as long as you have normal immune status.
If you feel that your immune system is generally decreasing, there are several ways you can try to help improve it such as:
Eating foods with balanced nutrition every day
Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits
Eat enough water every day (minimum 2 liters per day)
Avoiding alcohol consumption
Avoid the use of cigarettes
Get enough rest every day (at least 7-8 hours a day or according to your body's needs)
Avoid excessive stress
Doing regular exercise (at least 3-4 times per week)
If you feel that certain symptoms are disturbing, contact your doctor immediately for further examination of your condition
I hope this helps.
