Good afternoon, 6 years ago I tested my HBsAg positive and after consulting with the doctor it was recommended to test the HBeAg and the results were non-reactive, and last month I tested again with my HBsAg positive again, does that mean the hepatitis is still active?

1 Answer:

Good evening Joko, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


HBsAg is one of the tests to find out whether there is a Hepatitis B virus or not in a person's body. While HBeAg is an examination to find out whether the Hepatitis B virus is actively reproducing or not in the body.


HBsAg results that are still positive after 6 years can be caused by 3 conditions, namely:

recurrent infection (reactivation / reinfection) of the Hepatitis B virus
chronic hepatitis B disease (old)
carrier of the Heaptitis B virus without any signs of infection

Because the possibilities are still quite a lot, it is advisable to consult your doctor again who had suggested you to re-check. Your doctor may suggest you do some other hepatitis B examination to confirm your current condition.


Meanwhile, due to the positive HBsAg results, it means that you have the Hepatitis B virus in the body, so it is highly recommended not to do things that have the risk of transmitting the virus to others, such as having unprotected sex, donating blood / organs, doing tattoos / piercing, or using tools that are at risk of getting your blood together with other people.


I hope this helps.
