What does the Hep titer test show?
Hep titer test is a type of immunity testing used to diagnose hepatitis A and B. Hepatitis is generally a viral disease that affects the liver. People who get the hepatitis A and B vaccine make a protein called an antibody in their body. Also, if a person gets infected, after a while, he makes antibodies in his body, which is called natural immunity.
Titer testing basically looks for antibodies in the blood that are made due to receiving Hep A & B vaccines or after getting the infection.
When should you get the Hep titer test?
The Hep titer test can be performed when you need proof of immunity to Hep A and B or just intend to check your immune status.
Note that if you have been vaccinated, you should do a hep titer test at least 6 to 8 weeks after vaccination.
The Hep titer test is like a simple blood test and does not require special preparation. If you use biotin (B complex vitamins), it is recommended that you avoid it for at least 72 hours before collecting the sample.
