You are not having any active disease at the moment but you might have exposure to hepatitis B virus that made you antibodies

I would recommend to do liver function tests and consult any Hepatologist (specialist of liver)

Pls see this report which was done by NHS last month
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

A positive anti-HBc (or HBcAb) test result indicates a past or current hepatitis B infection.

Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

So you need further examination and if needed tests by Hepatologist.

Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

You might need a liver ultrasound scan also

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
An HBsAg-negative/anti-HBc–positive/anti-HBs–positive status corresponds to a resolved infection.
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

Anti-Hbc positive antibodies might be present in recent or past infection both depending which either IgM or IgG is predominant. So do not put yourself in this completed stuff. Better get checked soon
