Overview of HbsAg Test in Bangalore
HBsAg stands for hepatitis B surface antigen, which is a common test performed for diagnosing hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by a virus. Globally, 1 out of 3 individuals are affected by hepatitis B. Moreover, 300 million people are currently living with chronic hepatitis B infection. The number of deaths that occur due to hepatitis B is significantly high, warranting prompt detection of the infection.
This life-threatening infection can be diagnosed in its early stages as well by undergoing the HBsAg test, which screens for the presence of a protein (antigen) related to the hepatitis B virus (HBV) to identify it in your blood sample. Although hepatitis B is treatable, you will need to get a confirmed diagnosis with the HBsAg test to begin treatment. You can easily get the HBsAg test in Bangalore done from the comfort of your home with Orange Health Labs.
Reasons to Take the HbsAg Test
The HBsAg test is primarily performed for the diagnosis of hepatitis B in individuals with suspected symptoms. Hepatitis B is a silent epidemic, which means you may not have any symptoms despite being infected and experiencing ongoing liver damage.
Moreover, the virus can spread from one person to another in various ways. The good news is that you can protect yourself from hepatitis B with a simple blood test as it is the only way to determine whether you have the hepatitis B infection.
The HBsAg test is available for all individuals who are willing to undergo a primary screening for hepatitis B. The test can also be conducted if you have symptoms of hepatitis or if you have been accidentally exposed to HBV. In such cases, re-testing is recommended 6 months after the exposure. Screening HBsAg is recommended during pregnancy to protect your child from getting infected if you have hepatitis B. Individuals at high risk of hepatitis B include intravenous drug users, prisoners, sex workers, and hemodialysis patients. Therefore, they are strongly recommended to get tested.

This should be followed by further tests to determine the level of infection. A negative test result reveals that you are free from the hepatitis B infection.
