Hepatitis B Treatment?
, my mother finished laboratory check for hepatitis b results. The result is non-reactive HBeAg, anti-reactive HBe, reactive HBsAg, non-reactive anti-HBs ( u0026gt; = 10 mlU / mL after vaccination) and anti-reactive HBc. is this hepatitis severe? can it be transmitted through a tablespoon?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hepatitis B is an infection that occurs as a result of infection with the hepatitis B virus. In the hepatitis B examination, 3 types of tests are carried out to assess the presence or absence of the virus in the body and how antibodies fight the virus.
HBsAg is a test to assess the presence of the virus in the body. By saying it is reactive, it states that the hepatitis B virus is in the blood and can transmit to other people. HbcAg. This test is to assess that the infection is acute or chronic. A positive result indicates that the person has a chronic infection (has been running for a long time) or it can also indicate that there is a healing process from acute hepatitis B. Anti HbS states whether there are antibodies formed to fight infection. If the reactive results indicate the presence of antibodies against the infection which are also obtained through vaccination. If all three tests are performed and show hepatitis B infection, liver function tests will also be performed. Severe or not the infection condition that occurs is certainly not only seen from the laboratory results, but the symptoms shown and the presence or absence of risk factors experienced by a person.
Hepatitis B is transmitted through contact with blood, for example in injecting drug users where sharing needles, there is no risky work such as health workers, through tattoos and others which can spread the virus through contact with blood.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
