Thanks for the query.

It means that your body has been exposed to Hepatitis A virus and that your body has started building immunity against it.

Did you suffer from Jaundice in the past?

Hepatitis A is a very common cause of jaundice (acute hepatitis). It is commonly acquired thought contaminated water or food. It is not a chronic and serious infection like Hepatitis B or C. and usually gets resolved in 1-3 weeks.

Hope this answers your query. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to ask me.
