|Hi! I had some test results and I would like somebody help me understand them.|
HBsAg ------> 0.2 (negative <1)
Anti-HBc ------------->0.07 IV (negative<1)
Anti-HBs ------------->0.4 mIU/mL (negative <10)
Anti-HBe ----> 1.98 (negative<1)
Does anybody knows what the isolated e antibody means?
Thanks in advance!

|Hi Watercat and welcome,|
Your hepb tests are as follows:
Hbsag- .2 negative means you do not have hep b
Anti-Hbc.07 negative- no past infections
Anti- hbs .4 negative- no immunity(no vaccinations)
The E antigen appears after a positive hep b(hbsag) infection.
So there would be no antibodies.
Hope that helps

|Thanks a lot for your answer.|
Is it possible to be in the window period? Should I repeat the tests in a month?
6 months ago I also had the HBsAg done which was negative.

|you do not have hep B. Testing is not necessary. Why are you testing?|

Well, I am pregnant (week 30) and my sgot and sgpt levels were elevated (56 and 108 respectively).
The gynecologist says this is from the lentogest injections (progesterone) I had a month ago, but another doctor asked me to test for hepatitis.
I had the tests and then the antihbe mark confused me.

|OK!! that's understandable. Makes sense to test for hepatitis, as long as they are drawing blood.|
Best of luck and congratulations on your upcoming child.
