Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

It means you have recent Hepatitis A infection and past Hepatitis E infection.

So you have only Hepatitis A and not Hepatitis E now.

I hope that answers your question.

I am sending my 3 LFT reports at different times,including the test done todayMy INR is 1.i also have itching.Please advice about progress,if everything is fine..

Hi,
I went through all the three LFT reports.
It shows that you are recovering from hepatitis ( due to Hep A).
Your INR value of 1 is also within normal limits.

The itching may not be due to the liver disease . But still you can consider taking T. UDCA along with T.Silymarin. Discuss with your doctor about this.

Complete recovery may take 4- 8 weeks time.

I hope that answers your question.
