Hepatitis B Test Panel

Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver and can result in chronic liver disease. It is transmitted through direct contact with the blood and other body fluids of an infected person. The incubation period for the virus is can be anywhere between one and four months. However, the virus can be detected in the blood within three weeks after exposure, which is the recommended time after which one can get tested. Because Hepatitis B is asymptomatic, most people do not exhibit any symptoms. If they do, the symptoms appear from six weeks to six months after infection.

Hepatitis B can be tested through blood samples of the infected person using Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg) test that respond to the Hepatitis B core Antigen. Our CLIA certified labs use IgM antibody test to measure the total anti-HBc as this is the most reliable way of detecting HBV infection as well as differentiating between acute and chronic infection types. Tests are usually completed within a few minutes with results usually delivered between 24 to 48 hours in most cases. No fasting is required for the blood test.

Who should get tested for Hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B can be transmitted through body fluids such as blood, saliva, vaginal fluids, and seminal fluids of an infected person. At higher risk are individuals who are involved in unprotected vaginal, oral and anal sex, unvaccinated men who have sex with men, and multiple sex partners or contact with sexual workers. Also, certain areas where HBV vaccination is not always readily available report more cases of Hepatitis B infection. The virus can also be transmitted from a mother to her child during childbirth.

If one has engaged in any high-risk sexual behavior, they should get tested. Also, persons who have been treated for STDs recently or had unprotected sex with partners who have been treated for STDs should also get tested for Hepatitis B.

How is Hepatitis B tested, is it a blood or urine test?

Hepatitis B tested by drawing blood. Laboratory personal draws a small blood sample during your visit to the test center.

What do I need to do to prepare for the test?

Hepatitis B tests doesn’t require any special preparation. No fasting is necessary for the blood draw.

What are the symptoms of Hepatitis B infection?

Some of the common symptoms of HBV include extreme tiredness, tenderness, and pain in the lower abdomen, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, painful joints, a headache, fever, and hives. If one displays most of these symptoms after contact with an infected person, they should get tested for confirmation.

What do the results mean?

A blood test is used to detect the presence of HBV in the blood. Positive results indicate the presence of an infection while a negative test means that one isn't infected. If one tests too early after infection, usually before three weeks, the result may be negative even with an infection. For certainty, one should retest after six weeks for confirmation of the initial results.

Is there a cure for Hepatitis B?

There are antiviral medications that help the body fight the virus. Most adults recover from the disease without any long lasting effects. There’s also a vaccine which prevents the disease; it is mostly given to children.

Excellent service hands down. My test was quick and results were available sooner than I expected. The best part was the privacy of the test. No one asked me personal questions, and the whole process was quite discreet.
