About Our Hepatitis A Immunity Testing

Note: Fasting is not required for this test.

Hepatitis A (HAV) is an acute infectious disease of the liver commonly transmitted through the ingestion of fecal matter, even in microscopic amounts. The virus can also be transmitted from close person-to-person contact, ingestion of contaminated food or drinking water, or via sexual contact.

HAV antibodies indicate prior or acute infection with, or immunization to, Hepatitis A virus. This blood test is used to confirm whether or not an individual has had hepatitis A or has been immunized for hepatitis A by detecting the presence of HAV antibodies (both IgG and IgM antibodies).

Symptoms of hepatitis A can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain/Discomfort
  • Vomiting
  • Low fever
  • Joint pain
  • Jaundice and dark urine
  • Loss of appetite
  • Clay-colored stool

People at risk for hepatitis A:

  • Live with or are caregivers to someone with hepatitis A
  • Have eaten contaminated food or drank contaminated water
  • Travel to areas of low/poor sanitation, especially Mexico and South & Central Asia
  • Share needle/drug equipment
  • Have had sexual contact with someone who has the virus
  • Eat food handled by someone with the virus who doesn't thoroughly wash his or her hands after using the toilet
