ANTI HAV IgM Test

ANTI HAV IgM Test

What is the ANTI HAV IgM Test?

The Hepatitis A Virus- IgM (Anti-HAV IgM) test looks for IgM antibodies that the body makes when infected with the HepA virus. Acute Hepatitis A antibodies occur after 2–4 weeks of infection and indicate a recent illness. Hepatitis A is a deadly liver disease. Oral faeces, inappropriate sexual contact, or close contact with an infectious person.

The infection usually clears itself in 4-8 weeks, but untreated HepA infection can develop into chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis. Infection risks increase when eating, and living habits are unhygienic.

Why Done? 

  • If you notice symptoms or signs of acute hepatitis, such as fever, lethargy, loose stools, vomiting, yellow skin or eyes, or any combination of these, consult your doctor immediately.
  • A positive Hepatitis A IgM test usually suggests a recent Hepatitis A viral infection. The stronger the virus infection, the higher the number of antibodies.
  • A negative test means you haven't recently been infected with Hepatitis A. It doesn't mean they've never had the infection.

Procedure: 

You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
