in the afternoon, I was in January this year to be exact, right side stomach pain that was excruciatingly painful like cramps, after I checked with the doctor he said I had hepatitis. I was advised to do a lab test, and the lab results showed spgt 586, spogt 316. refer to the hospital and hospitalization at the hospital. But I’m not clear what hepatitis I have. Until finally, I had another blood test at the hospital, which showed. HBS Ag : non reactive 0.512 Anti HBS : POSITIVE 454.3 IU/L IgM anti HAV : non reactive 0.356 Anti HCV : non reactive 0.072 What do you mean? I just got this sick, can the lab results be harmful to my disease or can it be cured? I was advised by my parents to drink the herbal medicine temulawak and palm sugar. is it okay to consume it? Thanks

Hello good morning Adnan.


The results of the tests you did after you were admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of hepatitis, namely:


HBsAg non-reactive: means you are not currently experiencing acute hepatitis B (not infected with hepatitis in the near future or recently)

Anti-HBs positive. In someone who has just been infected with hepatitis B or who is experiencing chronic hepatitis B infection, he will get a negative anti-HBs result. If the anti-HBs result is positive, this indicates that the person already has the body's defense cells against the hepatitis B virus, which occurs in people who have been immunized with hepatitis B or in patients who have just recovered from hepatitis B infection.

Non-reactive anti-HAV, indicating that you are not infected with the hepatitis A virus

Non-rective anti-HCV, indicating that you are not currently infected with the hepatitis C virus.

From the results of the examination, it is possible that you previously had hepatitis B virus infection but have recovered, so that the results of HBsAg are negative and the results of anti-HBs are positive. Hepatitis B is an inflammation of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. Transmission of the hepatitis B virus can occur through blood (eg transfusions, sharing needles with other people who have hepatitis B virus in their blood, using nail clippers, toothbrushes, or other tools). trimming the beard together with other people who have hepatitis B, or from occupational risks such as doctors or nurses who are splashed with hepatitis B patient blood, etc.) and through sexual contact (having sexual relations with people with hepatitis B.


It is recommended that you continue to re-check with the doctor who previously treated you and perform regular blood tests, to ensure that you are completely free from hepatitis B infection and do not suffer from chronic hepatitis B disease. Chronic hepatitis B can worsen over time, leading to cirrhosis of the liver, or even malignancy.


Temulawak, or in Latin called curcuma, is a plant that is believed to be able to treat indigestion, flatulence, and gastric problems, although there have been no strong scientific research results that prove the efficacy of temulawak. It is recommended not to consume this ginger for more than 18 weeks. If you take it in the form of vitamins or supplements, you should still make sure in advance that the supplement is registered with the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) and consult the doctor who treats you. Regarding palm sugar, there is no scientific research that explains the benefits of palm sugar for health.


I hope this helps.


Regards, dr. Denisa
