Description

Anti Hepatitis E Antibody Test (IgG or IgM)

Hepatitis E antibody test is done to diagnose the presence of Hepatitis E Virus (HEV) in the body or antibodies released against them. The virus finds its way into the human body through contaminated water and food.

Hepatitis E infection is a severe condition caused by the virus, that brings about detrimental effects on our liver; if not diagnosed and treated at an early stage. The pathogen takes around 3-7 weeks post invasion to come up with vivid symptoms. And this is what delays the diagnosis and treatment.

What are the symptoms of Hepatitis E Virus infection?

Individuals infected with hepatitis E suffer from abrupt weight loss. Continuous feeling of nausea and vomiting makes them feel extremely tired and drained out of energy. However, as the infection progresses, individuals experience a yellowish discoloration of skin, what is commonly known as Jaundice. It is now that they feel an urgent need to visit a doctor.

Fever along with prolonged pain on the right side of belly shows that the liver has been highly infected. Most people also experience a considerable dark urine and light stool. Most of these symptoms are specific to hepatitis E, and the doctor can very well diagnose the condition by simply discussing your symptoms. However, your doctor will definitely order for a blood test to confirm the infection by detecting antibodies in blood.

How to prepare for Hepatitis E Antibody Test?

Hepatitis E antibody testing is similar to any other blood test procedure. If your doctor suggests you to undergo other related lab tests simultaneously, you will need to discuss preparatory guidelines before hand to ensure accurate results.

Results of clinical diagnosis of Hepatitis E antibody are not very distinct from other forms of hepatitis. Therefore, doctors may also prescribe other tests such as liver function test or urine bilirubin to reconfirm results.

Who should take Hepatitis E Antibody Test?

Hepatitis E infections are not life threatening and medications are easily available that can bring things under control. However, if this infection happens during pregnancy, it can be a serious concern and may even lead to organ failure. Therefore, it is always suggested that women in their third trimester of pregnancy need to opt for hepatitis E tests without fail. Elderly individuals affected by the virus need to be taken good care so as to avoid unfortunate outcomes.
