Hepatitis suspicion

Hello to you. May i ask if my 30 days results for hep B & c which turned out negative are conclusive? Or i have to repeat the test? And what for the other forms of hepatitis? Im asking your help because even those hepatitis turned out negative, i have high Transaminases(82) and cholesterol(213).

Hello guys
I had a concern and i wanted to listen to your opinion. As i have already stated, i had a follow up anti hbs and anti hbc test. What troubles me is that lab doc didn't wanted to have a new fresh blood simple from me and said she could use the old one(3 days precisely).
My anxiety comes from the possibility if the blood test was inappropriate and the virus had fade from it.
What you think?

By reading at your result above, your anti-hbc is negative mean you have never been exposed to hbv, and your anti-Hbs is negative mean you are not immune to hep b virus yet.
if you were indeed vaccinated for hep b as a baby, either it did not work, or you've never taken it. Otherwise, the anti-has should have been reactive.

Yes i think so. CDC says what exactly you are saying. Off course i will take the vaccine.
But for the moment do you think im conclusively negative, if we consider the window period for those rates( antiHbs, antiHbC, HbsAg)? That what concerns my for the time being.
I am not an expert or an doctor, you may consult the doctor for better suggestion.  I would imagine if you have been infected, or recently infected, your hbsag will not be negative.  ALT is a measurement for liver cell dying, maybe cause by some other issue, or part of regeneration process
Nevermind. Your suggestion was either clear or conclusive. Im grateful for your correspondence.
Best wishes

If I were you, go take the hep b vaccine now, it can protect you for life from getting hep b virus
So do you think im conclusive negative now?
I had 3 vaccines as a baby. Here in Greece is mandatory for all the infants. And my doctor says that protect me for all my life even HBs is tested negative.

Hbsag is visible in blood 1-9 weeks after the virus enters the body. Transaminases and cholesterol may be high because of many other health issues, not only hbv.

So no need to test again? You know testing is stressful and difficult that's why I'm asking.
