The Meaning Of The Reactive Hbsag Test Results?
! First, I want to tell you a little bit, I am a health worker. But I have a history of reactive HBsAg, I don’t know if it’s congenital or infected from a patient I’ve worked with. So after I know that my HBsag is reactive, I always check up at one of the big hospitals in Jakarta for 3 months. The check-ups that I underwent were in the form of blood checks and ultrasound fibroscans. thank God the results are all good (the doctor said). What I regret here is that I did not get an explanation whether there was any treatment that I had to undergo or not and whether my HBsag could be cured or not. That’s why I didn’t continue the check up for the 6th month.rnrnSo how do I do it? Should I get therapy or will the HBsag go away on its own? Thank you very much:)
Hi Vika, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com
Hepatitis B is a serious infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Patients with hepatitis B can experience acute or chronic infection. Further investigations are needed to differentiate the two conditions.
In acute hepatitis B, the virus that attacks the body can be paralyzed within a few months so the patient will recover. In contrast to chronic hepatitis B, the virus persists in the patient's body for more than 6 months and if it does not receive proper treatment, the patient will be at risk of developing liver cirrhosis (hardening of the liver tissue).
You should consult again with the doctor who treats you, to determine what type of hepatitis B you are experiencing. Get enough rest and eat a balanced diet to keep your immune system strong. If you experience nausea, fatigue, yellow skin or the whites of your eyes, consult a doctor immediately.
So, I hope the answer is yes.
