Hepatitis B Examination Results?
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. I did a GCU test at the hospital. The results of the laboratory (laboratory result) have points saying: HBsAg and Anti HBs: Negative Suggestions and suggestions (Advice): Recommended for hepatitis B immunization. Does that mean I suffer from hepatitis? B? How severe is it? What foods should be consumed and avoided for hepatitis B sufferers?
Hi Va Lia, thank you for asking.
Your blood test results show the opposite. HBs Ag is a marker of the presence or absence of hepatitis B virus protein in a person's blood. If a person's blood is not found HBsAg (negative) then it means there is no hepatitis B virus in the person's body. Anti HBs is a marker of the presence or absence of an immune response produced by the body when someone is infected with the hepatitis B virus. If in the blood the anti HBs value is negative, it means that the person's body has no immunity to the hepatitis B virus because the person has never been infected with the hepatitis virus. B. Once I explain that you currently have no sign of being infected with the hepatitis B virus. It means that you are still free from hepatitis B.
The suggestion of hepatitis B vaccination is to prevent infection by the hepatitis B virus in the future. This recommendation is needed because hepatitis B is a liver infection which can be chronic and cause complications in the form of liver cirrhosis or liver cancer. Hepatitis B can be transmitted through sexual contact and through the blood (for example in the use of syringes for drugs or in the process of transfusion). This vaccination is only recommended for people who have never been infected with hepatitis B. This is because in people who have recovered from hepatitis B infection, the blood already has immunity to the virus, so it does not require additional immune system from the vaccine.
You can vaccinate hepatitis B 3 times. The second vaccination is 1 or 2 months after the first vaccination. The third vaccination is 6 months after the first vaccination. Don't worry, your body is free of hepatitis B at this time. Regards.
