Hepatitis B Core Antibody Test
Hepatitis B infection presents with a range of
symptoms, including fatigue, jaundice, abdominal pain, nausea, and dark urine.
To diagnose this viral infection, medical professionals often use the Hepatitis
B Core Antibody, Total w/ Reflex blood test, which measures both IgM and IgG
antibodies. A positive result indicates a past or ongoing Hepatitis B
infection, although it doesn’t specify the timing. Timely detection through
this test is vital as chronic HBV infections can lead to liver damage, necessitating
appropriate medical intervention.
