    Hep b diagnosis

    Hello, I have a question about my hep b serology results. I was under the impression I have a chronic infection, I was told this around 6 years ago. I had a blood test done a couple of days ago and the results are confusing to me as they indicate that I am immune and that I have cleared a past infection. I’m wondering if the original diagnosis oh chronic hep b was incorrect, when I was diagnosed with chronic hep b I don’t think I had actually had hep long enough to clear it. I have also read that....

    Risk for Hepatitis a,b, or c?

    I have a question about blood exposure and the risk of contracting hepatitis. I recently began remodeling my home, and got new flooring and carpet installed. The carpet installer must have cut his finger or hand because I noticed there was A LOT of blood on his shirt and pants later in the day. So he must have continued installing my carpet after the cut. And carpet installers crawl around when they install, so I'm sure his shirt and pants and fingers touched all of my carpet. Also, I saw a used....

    Hep C testing question

    Hello, there is a possibility i was exposed to hepatitis C five months ago involving needles. I was tested two weeks after possible exposure and came up negative, and i was recently tested again a few days ago (roughly 5 months after possible exposure) and I came back negative again. Is it safe to say I am in the clear? Does testing negative for Hep C mean theres a good chance i dont have A or B? Any insight is highly appreciated. I just want to quit worrying about this once and for all. Thank you....

    Can Hep C be spread through sensory deprivation?

    Hello! This is my first post on here so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place for it. I recently had an exposure that I suppose could be considered "high risk" (stupidly tried cocaine at a party and used the same "straw" that someone else had used). I plan on getting tested but this incident only happened about a week ago and I know it can take up to three months for the virus to be detectable. I go to a sensory deprivation lounge about once a month just to relax in the water....

As she has visited rheumatologist in her blood test we saw AST = 850 ALT = 2200 and so we rushed her to check for hepatitis and the answer was positive. Now, because of high ALT and AST they have told her to be hospitalized to stay under observation of the doctors. And so she did. But as she stayed in the hospital they did not do much to her, they gave her strong painkillers for the....
