QUERY REGARDING HIV, HEP. B & C
I was pricked by needle after I injected my father with an injection because of his underlying health conditions. When the needle pricked me the blood came out and I wasn't sure about the health status of my father . I went for his test for HIV, Hepatitis B and C on 20th April 2020. A test for Hep B and C had also been conducted in 2018 which came out to be negative but I went for retesting. Plz see reports. Are there any other diseases which can be transmitted from a needle prick ? Plz see his LFT report as his Serum Bilirubin is 2.1. Can bilirubin be increased in any other liver problems apart from Hep A,B,C,D and E ? Can A,D and E be transmitted from needle prick ? Plz help.

Hello! Firstly let me congratulate you on your awareness about needle-prick injuries. It's commendable you got all the valid tests done, and you probably have understood that all are negative. Now to answer your queries: 1) There are other blood borne diseases besides HIV, HBV and HCV, but they are not transmitted via needle stick injuries. 2) Bilirubin, especially indirect Bilirubin (the one increased in your father's report) can be high if there is an increase in breakdown of RBCs (red blood cells), which are a component of Hemoglobin. This most commonly occurs in Vitamin B12 and Folate deficiencies 3) HAV and HEV are transmitted through the faeco-oral route, and are NEVER blood borne. HDV is an exclusive super-added infection of HBV positive patients.
Next Steps
You have not mentioned your father's underlying medical conditions. If he is at high risk for blood borne infections, like getting frequent injections, or if he is on dialysis, he might be in the window period for HIV, HBV, and HCV (ie he has the infection, but tests are negative). It is advisable to repeat tests for HIV, HBV and HCV after 3 months.
Health Tips
Please also do Vitamin B12 and Folate levels, so that he can be prescribed appropriate supplements.

As per the details and reports provided by you, there seems no risk of any disease transmission as such. Moreover if your father never had any infectious disease which can be fatal or gruesome then there is no need be worried about.
