The Definition Of A Positive HBsAg Lab Result, Reactive HBeAg?
Good afternoon doctor. When I was in high school, I got a letter at UTDD and it was declared that I could no longer donate because of the virus. R nThen every time I gave birth, I was required to buy the hyperhev vaccine. now it’s 5th since giving birth, finally I want more control. r nCheck SGOT 19, SGPT 19, HbeAg 0.300 reactive. r n What do you mean? thank you
Thank you Tari85 for your questions in the Alodotker forum, hepatitis is a disease characterized by inflammatory reactions in the liver. Where this condition can be caused by various things such as:
- autoimmune disease
- use of certain drugs
Generally, hepatitis is caused by a virus, where the hepatitis virus has several types starting from hepatitis A to hepatitis E. In the hepatitis B virus, transmission usually occurs due to contact with the body fluids of people with hepatitis B, such as the use of syringes together or through sexual contact. Where to confirm this hepatitis B condition can usually be done with several blood tests such as:
- HBsAg, which is useful for detecting proteins present on the surface of the virus, which is usually used at the beginning to detect the presence of the virus
- HBeAg, which detects proteins produced and excreted in the blood, is usually tested to monitor the effectiveness of therapy and is usually a marker to determine the ability of the virus to pass on to other people.
- anti-HBs, which detect antibodies produced by the body against the hepatitis B virus response, are usually prescribed to assess previous exposure to the virus or to determine the success of a vaccination (established immunity).
- and other checks
Meanwhile, AST and ALT are enzymes produced in the liver, and usually this examination is useful to assess whether there is any disturbance in the liver or not. Where the normal level of SGOT ranges from 3-45 u / L, while the SGPT ranges from 0-35u / L. However, this reference value may vary in each laboratory, and you should be able to use the reference from where you checked your laboratory. A positive HBsAg result and a reactive HBeAg can indicate a chronic infection from the hepatitis B virus. In such conditions, you should be able to consult again with the related internal medicine specialist in order to evaluate the results of the re-examination before any related planning can be given.
Beirkut there are articles about hepatitis B
That's all from me, hope it can help
