Overview


What is Anti HDV Antibody IgM?

When an antibody binds with another antibody ( for instance the fusion of IgM and IgG), anti-antibodies are created. People suffering from Hepatitis B are also tested for Hepatitis D or HDV to check the rate of anti-HDV antibody in the body.


Why is Anti HDV Antibody IgM done?

A person is likely to suffer from Hepatitis D if he/she observes these symptoms and should get tested immediately:

•    Dark Urine

•    Yellowing of skin and eyeballs

•    Vomiting

•    Upper Abdominal Pain

•    Fatigue
