關於B型肝炎

Diagnosing hepatitis B is done through a simple and inexpensive blood test that detects the presence of the hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), a marker for chronic infection. Early detection of HBV will also help to prevent the infection from spreading. 

Have a Doctor?

We encourage you to get tested at your own doctor's office so your health can be monitored. Ask for the tests below for both yourself and your family. For best results, we recommend completing all 3:


• HBsAg- Hepatitis B surface antigen
• HBsAb- Surface antibody
• HBcAb- Hepatitis B core antibody


Here are some pre-made digital cards in multiple languages to show your doctor. We recommend you take a picture on your phone and take it with you to show your doctor. If your doctor can only speak English please remember to take a picture of the English card as well.
