Details
Who should take the test?

Hepatitis B is a viral illness linked to inflammation of the liver, which can progress from an acute infection to a chronic condition.

In adults, the primary mode of transmission is through sexual contact, and even minor skin or mucous membrane injuries can lead to infection. Additionally, bodily fluids such as sperm, vaginal secretions, saliva, and tears from individuals with hepatitis B can carry the virus and are contagious. Transmission can also occur during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

Particularly at risk for infection are:

  • Medical personal
  • Dialysis patients
  • Drug addicts
  • People who get pierced ears, tattoos or piercings under unsanitary conditions
  • People with changing sexual partners
  • People with chronic liver disease
How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a viral illness characterized by liver inflammation, and it can transition from an acute infection to a chronic condition. The primary modes of transmission are through unprotected sexual intercourse or contact with contaminated blood.

Approximately two billion individuals are either infected with or have experienced hepatitis B infection. Presently, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are around 257 million people living with hepatitis B, resulting in approximately 887,000 deaths each year due to its consequences. This makes hepatitis B the fourth leading cause of infection-related deaths worldwide. Fortunately, these statistics are steadily improving, largely due to the implementation of hepatitis B vaccination programs in many countries. The WHO’s ultimate goal is the complete eradication of hepatitis B through vaccination.

For symptom management, medications may be administered to alleviate issues like pain or nausea. It is recommended to maintain physical rest and follow a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet. Generally, acute hepatitis B can be treated at home, with hospitalization necessary only in severe cases. Antiviral therapy is typically advised when liver function is already compromised, and there is an imminent risk of liver failure.
