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)

and

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.

Kind regards

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

Thanks again.

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.

Kind regards

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.
