Testing for Hepatitis A

The hepatitis antibodies test is a blood test, which can detect previous exposure to the HBV virus. This test is typically used to determine the need for a hepatitis vaccination or to see whether someone has recovered from a hepatitis infection and is now immune to HBV. It can also detect the presence of an active infection.


Even if you do not have any symptoms, if you have been exposed to the Hepatitis A virus recently it is advised that you get tested, so that early treatment can stop any potential infection from developing. A proper diagnosis can also rule out similar conditions.

About Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). It is usually transmitted through ingestion of contaminated food or water or through direct contact with an infected person. The disease is often mild with no lasting liver damage, but it can cause acute liver failure in rare cases. Symptoms include fatigue, stomach pain, nausea, and jaundice. The Hepatitis A test involves blood testing to detect the presence of antibodies or antigens related to HAV. Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent hepatitis A, and the test is particularly recommended for individuals traveling to areas with high rates of HAV or those with occupational risks.

When should I get tested for Hepatitis A?
If you have just been exposed to the virus, come to the doctor immediately, as a vaccination or injection can reduce your chances of contracting the disease. The test will be most accurate at least two weeks, and ideally four weeks, from the time of exposure before having this test. This is because the disease has an incubation period of about 28 days.
The high risk groups for Hepatitis A are doctors, dentists, and nurses. Also at risk are men who have unprotected sex with men, those who frequently travel to countries where the disease is common, those who use drugs, have a blood clotting disease (such as hemophilia), or live with someone who has the disease.
The doctor will discuss your results with you and advise you on the best course of action. There is no specific cure for this disease but the body can recover on its own with proper care.
