Please read my post again. I wrote it would be rare to have more then one of the viruses at the same time. Not the antibody but active virus. The reason this would be rare is if you had Hep C along with A or B you would probably be dead!

Yes it is possible to be tested for Hepatitis virus A,B,C at the same time. Of course it would be rare to have more then one of these types.

Not to worry, many things can cause above normal LFT's, i.e. drinking alcohol close to when test was done, medications, etc.

best of luck
